Daily Advent Reflection Resources
1. All Creation Waits by Gayle Boss
"Advent is the season of dwindling light and gathering cold – with a mystery at its core. Animals of the northern hemisphere enact that mystery. Watching them, we can find a way to face our primal fear of the dark and cold, a healthier way than falling into depression or spiraling into frenzied distraction.
For each day of Advent, All Creation Waits opens a window onto the world of an animal amazingly, ingeniously adapting when darkness and cold descend. The animals show us in twenty-four different ways the deep mystery and abiding truth at the heart of the Christ story: The dark is not an end, but the way a new beginning comes." - from author Gayle Boss's website.
2. Preparing for Christmas: Daily Reflections for Advent by Richard Rohr
"'Advent is not about a sentimental waiting for the Baby Jesus,' Richard Rohr asserts. Advent is a time to focus our expectations and anticipation on 'the adult Christ, the Cosmic Christ,' who challenges us to empty ourselves, to lose ourselves, to surrender.
Drawing on selections from his best-selling inspirational lecture on CD, Preparing for Christmas With Richard Rohr, this booklet provides daily reflections and prayers for the Advent season, along with each day's Scripture readings and questions for reflection. A wonderful resource for personal prayer, this attractive, 80-page, pocket-sized booklet is a perfect companion for your Advent preparation." - from Storygraph
