Along with my current theme of the Jesus prayer – which I am still trying to do as I fall asleep on the train ride to work – I am re-reading an Advent book I first read a couple of years ago. The book is called “Do Nothing Christmas is Coming”. It’s all about trying to regain a sane attitude to Advent and Christmas. You can find out more here if you are interested http://www.amazon.co.uk/Do-Nothing-Christmas-Coming-Difference/dp/0715142127/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354645535&sr=8-1
In Advent we are supposed to be preparing for Christ’s return, thinking about his death and his resurrection. It’s quite a sombre time, sort of appropriate for the time of year.
Mine Advent is looking like it will be manic as usual no matter how hard I try to relax! I hope yours is blessed and peaceful.
