Publisher's Description

Okoro invites readers to pause during Advent and take a heartfelt look at the story of Elizabeth and Zechariah.  This faithful couple receives astonishing news in their old age.
In Okoro's daily meditations for Advent, readers spend time with Zechariah and Elizabeth.  As they look deep inside this faithful couple's longings and doubts, they will increase their own capacity for patience and wonder and be reminded of God's promise to make all things new.
These poetic and poignant meditations will echo long after Christmas has passed.  Their tough and tender wisdom acknowledges both wounds and blessedness-the griefs and joys of life.  Reflection questions and a prayer challenge accompany each week's meditations.  This book is perfect for individuals or groups.
