The Archbishop of York’s Advent Book 2021
Meditations for Advent with Evelyn Underhill by Robyn Wrigley-Carr
‘Almost before I had begun this wonderful book, I was hooked.’
‘This is a wise guide for Advent meditations but moves well beyond the Advent season based on the spiritual writings of the early twentieth century Anglican mystic Evelyn Underhill. It is fresh, deep and practical with prayers and questions for further study drawing us closer to God’s loving presence in Christ in our broken world.’
The Very Revd Nicola Sullivan
Dean of Southwell
The renowned spiritual writer Evelyn Underhill believed that God not only comes to us at special times: He is always coming to us! But how do we recognise and make ourselves open to His loving Presence?
In The Archbishop of York’s Advent Book, Robyn Wrigley-Carr offers a series of meditations, one for every day of the season, that skilfully weave together Evelyn’s wonderfully fresh writings with Bible passages, questions for discussion and short prayers. Through these, she reveals how we can embrace God’s comings and be transformed by them as we seek to be like Christ, loving others in our broken world.
