My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a very handy book that I recommend to anyone who wants to get in the habit of regular reflection during Advent. Lisa Hendey has written a series of 5-minute prayers designed for daily use by individuals or families, even those with young children.
The family gathers round the Advent wreath, lighting the candle, a song is sung, and a scripture reading is provided to be read aloud for prayer and contemplation. There are reflection and conversation prompts, both for adults and for children. A closing prayer provides more food for thought as it sums up the daily readings.
This is a good book that I could see becoming a family tradition from year to year. I’m looking forward to using it myself beginning Sunday when Advent is finally here.
