Advent and Christmas Paperback / softback
Part of the Bridges to Contemplative Living series
In this accessible introduction to the writings of Thomas Merton, small-group participants are led on a path of spiritual growth from the first week of Advent through Christmas.
Each of the books five sessions focuses on a distinct theme: hope, salvation, compassion, tenderness, or incarnation.
The structure of each session includes prayers, a brief thematic introduction, probing dialogue questions, and a reading from Merton paired with a reading from one of five other spiritual masters, including Gerard Thomas Straub, Anne D.
LeClaire, Olivier Clment, Michael Casey, and Christopher Bamford.
This contemplative approach provides a welcoming haven during the midst of a hectic season for existing small groups or for those looking for deeply rewarding reflection on the meaning of Advent and Christmas.
