“Groan. It’s the first day of December. I’ve got about a hundred Christmas cards to write (and several ghastly round robin letters to read). The kids are opening their chocolate advent calendars and I’ve just got this poxy book. What is this all about?”
Christmas is one of the most joyful times of the year. It can also be one of the most stressful.
So, rather than a chocolate Advent calendar, Do Nothing: Christmas is Coming offers you an Advent countdown with a difference.
From 1 December all the way through to Christmas Day, Stephen Cottrell gives you short, practical steps that you can take each day to slow down, take time out – and enjoy getting ready for Christmas.
STEPHEN COTTRELL is Bishop of Reading and author of numerous books, including the best-selling D Nothing to Change Your Life, Travelling Well and Emmaus: the way of faith.
‘There must be another way of celebrating Christmas, where its joys and promises can help put life together again.’
Stephen Cottrell, from the Foreword ADVENT TO EPIPHANY
