Product Details

If you are looking for a fresh new way to look at the Advent season, you may want to check out the book All Creation Waits The Advent Mystery of New Beginnings. The author, Gayle Boss, takes us into the lives of animals as they adjust and adapt to the cold and dark of winter and the Advent season. Each day of Advent has a short reflection and an exploration of the life rhythms of various birds and animals as the colder season of winter approaches. Stunning illustrations by David G Klein add further beauty to the stories.

Boss tells of the painted turtle and how it sinks into the mud to hibernate, how its systems slow down and its heart almost stops beating. But the turtle TRUSTS that the world will warm again and so will its own life. The way Boss tells the story makes you feel the ooze of the mud and cold of the water, almost like you are there and you are encouraged, like the turtle, to trust that warmer times are ahead. All Creation Waits This Advent is a book adults will enjoy sharing with children or even reading on their own and using as a source of Advent daily meditation. Richard Rohr says of the book "As the animals adapt to the dark and cold they announce in 24 different ways the Good News of Advent, that through every dark door the creating Love of the universe awaits".
