Item description for Awaiting the Child: An Advent Journal by Isabel Anders...

Overview
"The season of Advent offers us, each year, an opportunity to seek God within the geography of our souls-while living outwardly amid the roar and tumult of worldly events," Isabel Anders writes in her preface to this new edition of Awaiting the Child: An Advent Journal. Written during one Advent when she was expecting her first baby, and including an introduction by Madeleine L'Engle, this meditational gem speaks to us on multiple levels, probing deeply into Advent's rich tapestry of paradox and splendor . . . showing the way to keeping a holy vigil through this secularly dominated season of the year.

Reviews - What do customers think about Awaiting the Child: An Advent Journal?

A good reminder for all of us!  Nov 8, 2005
Isabel Anders in her preface describes Advent as the season that unlocks the mysteries of our being-here with each other--through these short days and long nights.

Writing this review as daily savings time ended, one needs to feel there is a good reason for the long darkness: a time for us to find peace in our lives.

Pregnant at the time she wrote this book, the author created it as a guide with daily reading for the Advent season. Her premise is waiting for both Advent and her own child to arrive, tied to Jesus birth--Christ's coming.

As an Episcopalian, the author declares that in the cycle of life, during Advent, we implore: "Come Lord Jesus...." The value of words in her church's ceremonies and services, both visual and verbal, are ways to show the truth.

Grace, one of my favorite concepts, is what files each person's cup, and that person's needs to know what that is for them.

The church calendar is a reminder that we are not only at the end--but at the beginning as well. The four-week Advent waiting leads to the birth we all wait for.

Armchair Interview says that this book is a good reminder to everyone of the power of waiting, and receiving.
