Christmas by Candlelight will help you take time out to put the Christ back into Christmas. David Thomson provides daily Bible readings, reflections and prayer ideas for the six weeks from the beginning of Advent right through to Epiphany. Built around the candles of the Advent Wreath, this book will take you on a journey through all the familiar Carol Service readings and the early chapters of the Gospels, relating them to today’s issues.
Includes notes for a ‘Take Time Together’ group to meet for the duration of Advent.
David Thomson is Archdeacon of Carlisle and a Canon of the cathedral there. He has a growing ministry leading people from all church backgrounds in imaginative approaches to the scriptures.
‘Profound and original reflections written in an immediately accessible, conversational style that will make them useable by anyone. This is a wonderful introduction to celebrating the Christmas season.’
Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
‘Straightforward and approachable … Christmas by Candlelight blends personal devotion with some stimulating activities for groups.’
