From Advent's Alleluia To Easter's Morning Light: Poetry For Worship, Study, And Devotion

Weems's lyrical poetry is a reminder of the importance of true discipleship. She challenges Christians to look past the ongoing distractions of the "busy work" of church meetings and socials, new programs and technology, and inevitable conflict, while reminding readers in her singularly expressive voice that the "institution" of the church is, at heart, quite simply all about Jesus. This collection of poems, written to be used in worship, in personal devotions, and in discussion groups, is organized to follow the liturgical year from Advent through Easter. Kneeling in BethlehemIn a style that is contemporary, reverent, and faith-filled, the poet offers a collection of meaningful poems reflecting on the Christmas season.

I bought this book as a gift for a friend who likes Ann Weems. I have some of her other books and have enjoyed them.

My favorite is still Kneeling in Bethlehem but this is another MUST HAVE for my prayer book collection. Very helpful if you plan worship services or need assistance with what to offer in pastoral care.

Ann Weems always finds just the right words to say it!
