Under African Skies - Reflections for Advent and Christmas
Author: Carolyn Butler
Provides daily readings, reflections and prayers for the four weeks before Christmas and the Twelve Days of Christmas (Christmas Day to the 6th of January). These easy to use reflections help us to keep our eyes upon Jesus during this busy holiday time.
A unique feature is that it is written from the perspective of the southern hemisphere, where Christmas is a season of sunshine and warmth, not cold and darkness as in the north. Carolyn Butler manages to create images and symbols for Advent and Christmas that resonate with our own African experience.
