Pauses for Advent

by Trevor Hudson

Tak­ing time to pause for a few min­utes each day can help us main­tain bal­ance in our lives, espe­cial­ly dur­ing the Advent and Christ­mas sea­sons. In this sim­ple yet not sim­plis­tic book, Trevor Hud­son focus­es on one bib­li­cal word of won­der for each day of Advent. His insight­ful reflec­tions on the word for each day invite indi­vid­u­als and groups to a deep­er under­stand­ing of Advent.

Hud­son also briefly explores the lives and thoughts of 4 sig­nif­i­cant char­ac­ters in the Christ­mas sto­ry, encour­ag­ing us to immerse our­selves in the dra­mat­ic sto­ry. He offers a sim­ple dai­ly prac­tice that helps us become involved in the Advent dra­ma. Hud­son’s min­i­mal­ist approach and con­ver­sa­tion­al writ­ing lead us to dis­cov­er how we can open our hearts and lives more gen­er­ous­ly to God.
