Item Description...
Have you ever read Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Matchgirl?" (If not, go here.) In the story, a poor little girl sees marvelous visions of the small luxuries life has denied her whenever she strikes a match. Sometimes it takes looking at familiar seasons from a different perspective to be inspired again by the event. This book will help you look into your own "lighted windows" to rediscover "God with us" this Advent. Silf's observations are like the windows of an Advent calendar, leading you closer to the mystery that is born in Bethlehem. Join Silf on a 37-day pilgrimage from the first day of Advent through Epiphany. Each daily meditation includes a brief scripture passage a thought-provoking commentary guidance through a spiritual exercise a closing prayer During the first three weeks of the book's journey, you'll glimpse evidence of God's guidance and wisdom. During Christmas week, the "windows" open wide, inviting us to the heart of the mystery of God's coming to earth. As the readings move to the fifth week, the windows turn into doors, through which we're sent back into the waiting and wounded world. Silf writes, "[This book is intended] as an invitation to connect the God-story with your story and your circumstances in a way that makes a difference - so that 'God with us' becomes 'God with you.'" For readers who want to make the Advent journey with a group, Lighted Windows contains a five-session, small-group discussion guide within the book.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Advent preparation  Mar 4, 2006
For anyone looking for a very personal and spiritual guide to walk though the weeks of Advent, this is it. I've used it for a few years now, (this one was a gift for next year) and it brings the true meaning of the time before Christmas to heart. I wish there was one like this for Lent as well as other times of the year.
Great Advent study  Oct 27, 2004
This book offers a great advent study for those with 10-15 minutes a day to spend with the reading, the scriptural passage, and to read and hopefully reflect on the prayer included for each day. The story/short essay provided is 2-3 pages in length, easy to read, and involves a reflection by the author about that day's topic. The book provides a small group discussion guide for each week for those who want to do the study with a group. I shall do the study alone, however, and will find it just as interesting I believe. In our busy world, the study is very doable in a short amount of time each day, and if you get behind a day or two it won't be overwhelming to catch up. All in all, a nice study for the Advent season, and a little push each day to encourage us to stay with a little daily Bible reading as the Advent season progresses.
