Meditations for each day of Advent

We don't like to wait, but the season of Advent is all about waiting--a time of expectation, when Christians have traditionally devoted themselves to practices of prayer and study. This book offers a short meditation for each of the thirty days of the season, from the First Sun-day of Advent through Christmas Day. In the spirit of expectancy, each meditation focuses on seeking and seeing God in the everyday of our ordinary lives, based on a psalm that corresponds to the daily office for the season of Advent.

Expectant: Advent Meditations is the perfect seasonal practice companion for spiritual seekers as well as devoted Christians, and ideal for church groups and congregations wishing to hand out a fresh and contemporary Advent resource to members.

Anne E. Kitch is a priest, educator, writer, and speaker whose work is grounded in the conviction that God's grace arrives in the everyday. Kitch currently serves as the rector of St. Luke’s Church in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. The author of The Anglican Family Prayer Book,Taking the Plunge: Baptism and Parenting, Preparing for Baptism in the Episcopal Church, and the popular What We Do in Church series for children. She lives in Phillipsburg, New Jersey.

"The meditations are accessible in their simplicity and beauty, in which the extraordinary emerges in the ordinary, the holy emerges in the mundane, in which our Lord, as always promised, comes. Kitch’s gentle meditations are wonderfully inviting, especially perhaps for those who, at times, feel overwhelmed by the greatness of God or who struggle to find the presence of God, inviting us into relationship."—Rev. Dominique Peridans, rector of the Church of the Ascension Saint Agnes, Washington, DC.
