"The Advent walkabout is not an easy journey, nor was meant to be. This journey leads into the deeps of our own being. It is an opening of portals we have taken care to keep closed, a letting in of the knowledge and doubt and pain without which there can be no letting in of Christ, the child whose touch blesses, burns, heals and transfigures. The Advent walkabout cannot be for the faint-hearted for it demands extravagant courage and uncompromising honesty. It begins today. It ends at the manger that is not merely a pretty story but the transforming reality of God." - from the First Sunday in Advent What does it mean to be human in this season of waiting, asks Anne McConney in Our December Hearts.

Anne Costas5 Stars Out Of 5January 6, 2009Anne CostasExcellent. Good meditations to ponder during this most holy time of the year. Gave me some ideas/insights on Advent as well as my own spiritual growth. I was hoping to find one for LENT. Perhaps she will write one soon. I hope! Thanks for the excellent book.
