A perfect tool to introduce people to the practice of following the lectionary through the seasons of the Church year, this book contains Scripture references for each Sunday of Advent through Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (based on the Revised Common Lectionary, Cycle A), a reflection written by Ruth Haley Barton, questions for reflection and a prayer that draws the reader into the themes of Advent. Questions can be used for group discussion or personal reflection.
A longer reflection entitled "Training in Waiting" provides instruction on the purpose and value of engaging the season of Advent for spiritual transformation along with practical instructions on how to make the most of this resource.
