Reviews - What do customers think about Wisdom in the Waiting: Spring's Sacred Days?

A great writer  Jul 5, 2007
Phyllis Tickle uses stories of her own family to illustrate the liturgical calendar. A wonderful education for those of us raised in churches that don't celebrate the liturgical calendar.
Stories are full of wisdom. I quote the lost security blanket with Rebecca's dreams in it and the mourning for a lost child that never goes away, just becomes less arrogant.
