Item description for Teach Us to Number Our Days: A Liturgical Advent Calendar by Barbara Dee Bennett Baumgarten...

Overview
This practical handbook for homes and church communities helps to enrich the Christian celebration of Advent through the creation and use of an Advent calendar. Non-sewers can make a calendar using magazines and junk-mail, or one of felt, while more advanced stitchers can make a permanent calendar out of fabric. Barbara Dee Baumgarten also gives a brief history of the development of Advent in the Christian calendar, as well as detailed explanations of the various Christian (Old and New Testament) symbols that can be used during the season, the Sundays of Advent, and the Great 'O' Antiphons from December 17-23. This 8 1/2" x 11" softcover book also features black and white, hand-drawn illistrations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Teach Us to Number Our Days: A Liturgical Advent Calendar?

Wonderful way to celebrate the season  Nov 9, 2002
The book guides you through planning and creating an Advent calendar that interweaves the liturgy of the season with your everyday Christmas preparations, giving rich significance to such "menial" things as housecleaning, and serving as a reminder to do everything "as unto the Lord." You can choose from three different materials/levels of difficulty, and each one comes with step-by-step instructions and a shopping list! The book is written from a Catholic perspective, and the calendar is easy to adapt to other Christian traditions. Some days (like the 4 Sundays of Advent) have specific themes, but even the "doors" on those days can be personalized with different decorations and Scripture verses. Other days, you choose something that suits your family -- a school house for the last day of school or a Christmas tree for the day you decorate your tree. Each day's theme also comes with one or more Scriptures, a brief "lesson" and a prayer. For families used to starting the day with a devotional, this puts a different spin on it. For families that aren't, it's a great way to start. I've found a wonderful way of reducing the stress and reminding my family what's really important.
