Advent Reading

In the fall I started reading The Divine Hours: Prayers for Autumn and Winter, by Phyllis Tickle. This book lays out an ancient pattern of prayer in an easy format. It has been beneficial to me, and I plan to read the Spring and Summer books too.

For the Advent Season I am adding several books to my devotional time:
Watch for the Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas (collection of readings by a wide variety of inspirational authors)

A Handful of Light, by Michael Mitton (this year's Advent devotional from the Bible Reading Fellowship)

Sacred Space: The Prayerbook 2009 (the print version of an Irish online prayer guide: sacredspace.ie )

And as usual, I'm reading the book of Psalms.

Ten O'Clock Scholar offers suggestions for Family Advent Reading, as well as an Advent Mr. Linky, here.

SHi, Nicolemrw, aka Silver-Chipmunk, from sihp-of-fools, replying to your comment on my livejournal here, rather than there. Glad youi like the gratitude list idea. It's something I picked up from my 12-step program (I'm in alanon, the one for friends and family of alcoholics). It is pretty useful, especially on days when I really feel down. Just having to come up with six things really makes you realize that no matter how unhappy you feel there really are things to be happy about.

Yes, Jennifer. I am a flake...running out of ink to print the shipping label is my excuse this time! You should get it very soon though.
