The season of Advent means that there is something on the horizon. But if we are not careful, if we do not pause and listen, we could miss the hidden gifts within the darkest days of the year. Author Jan L. Richardson has assembled a shadowy yet warm and soothing collection of paper collage artwork and daily meditations for helping readers see the possibilities of this spiritually profound season. "We require the darkness for birth and growth; the seed in the ground, the seed in the womb, the seed in our souls," explains Richardson. "In the dark lie possibilities for intimacy, for rest, for healing." With these tender promises, like the glowing Advent candles in the black of night, Richardson leads readers through a month of reflections and devotions that honor the darkness and brighten the spirit. --Gail Hudson
