Cultivating Attentiveness in the Season of Advent
  • By Pamela C. Hawkins
Product Description

Behold! is an old-fashioned word missing from most modern translations of the Bible. Yet Pamela Hawkins says this word softens the edges of her heart. She writes, “I cannot say this word without moving, without extending and lifting a hand, palm open, toward the object of my attention.”

In Behold! Hawkins invites readers to enter Advent with an attitude of curious expectancy and trustful anticipation. For each of the four weeks of Advent, she focuses on a single Advent word from the scripture readings for that week and offers a form of prayer for readers to try. The words and prayer methods are Expectancy—Praying with Images; Preparation—Silent Prayer; Faith—Using Prayer Beads; and Promise—Compline (Night Prayer).

Readers can follow all the spiritual practices the author suggests or choose the ones that most catch their attention. The practices include reflection, silence, prayer, reading scripture, reading or singing hymn texts, and Christian service and action.  Readers will enjoy the simplicity and beauty of this Advent book, which features beautifully written prayers and hymn texts. 4 weeks • Includes Leader’s Guide
