Waiting in Joy An Advent Journey


by John Scally

Advent is often the poor relation compared to Christmas. Yet to prepare properly for Christmas we need to journey through Advent in an uplifting way. This unique collection of original reflections, prayers and scripture quotations will help you to do just that.

It is designed so that you can celebrate the birth of the Lord having the love of Jesus surround you; the light of Jesus lead you; the peace of Jesus fill you; the power of  Jesus aid you; the joy of Jesus thrill you; the presence of Jesus dwell within you.

This book will resonate with anyone who is seeking to integrate their daily life, their aspirations and their needs, with an intimate relationship with God in this special season.

John Scally, theologian, writer and broadcaster, aims to approach the familiar in a new way and he uses a variety of styles in his reflections.

This book also contains a treasure trove of ideas for teachers and preachers to mark Advent.
