Comings and Goings: Retracing the Christmas story through place and time is a brilliant book of readings for Advent and Christmas!
The book invites use to journey through the comings and goings of time, from the end (Advent) to the very beginning of all things (Epiphany).
The daily reflections work backwards from the traditional Advent focus of the ‘Four Last Things’ – Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell. Then they continue, via Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, and at last turn to the Incarnation and the events commemorated at Christmas. Following this, the focus turns to Christ as the Word of God, present at the dawn of creation. The books also provides a fresh approach to the Christmas story exploring insights from the actual pilgrim sites for key Gospel events.
Includes questions for group/individual use.
