The coming of Jesus changed our world forever. During the season of Advent, we best prepare for the arrival of Jesus, the Coming One, by keeping our hearts and minds open and making room for him. Yet we allow things to get in the way.
In this collection of 40 daily reflections for Advent, author Ray Simpson first outlines the roadblocks, such as materialism and clutter, that need to be cleared away so that we are ready for Jesus' arrival. Next, he identifies the signposts – prophecies, intuitions, stirrings – that help us to travel in the direction of what or who is coming. With these signposts clear, he then explores how we should prepare ourselves for the arrival of Jesus. And finally, Ray considers glimpses of glory – fresh expressions of the Light of the World.
This meditative and enlightening approach to journeying through Advent will be an invaluable accompaniment to your own preparation for the arrival of Jesus.
