Meditations for Advent

My Soul in Silence Waits: An Advent Journey 2018 

During a period of physical incapacitation this past summer, I had the opportunity to create a small book of reflections for Advent, following the familiar pattern of our daily posts to this website.  Each of the 23 days of Advent has a full-page image paired with a scriptural text, assigned generally from Holy Women, Holy Men or Lesser Feasts and Fasts. The reader is invited to look at the entire passage, with a focus on a specific verse, as you prepare to open your inner being to the presence of the Divine One who has come, is now with us, and comes again.  The e-book version is available for purchase by clicking on this link for $7.99, which will be 100% donated to the Deacon Formation program in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland. This book is best enjoyed by using a two-page view on your e-book reader or computer.

Alternatively, you can obtain a PDF copy at no cost by sending an email request via the Contact Me tab in the top menubar. Also, set your PDF reader to two-page view for best results.

During Advent, you can also participate in this experience by continuing to come to this website each day to see the image of the day and listen to, or read, the same brief spiritual reflection.

May your Advent be filled with blessings, patient waiting and joyful anticipation.
