The seasons of the Church's year parallel those of the natural world, gifting us with opportunities for spiritual life and growth. The watchfulness of Advent with its symbolism of light and darkness gives way to the explosion of joy as we welcome the birth of Christ; the sombre season of Lent leads us through the despair of the cross to the wonder and joy of Easter. But our journey into God is far more than a succession of spiritual high points, and perhaps the weeks of 'Ordinary Time' encourage us to persist in our walk with Christ during those times when nothing much seems to be happening. Beginning with Advent Sunday, Encircling the Christian Year presents a series of short liturgies for each week of the Church calendar, including a Bible reading, reflection, and prayers, suitable for both individual and small group use. Special liturgies are also provided for the major festivals and 'red letter days', those saints and events most closely connected with the life of Christ. As well as engaging with the liturgical seasons, the book invites us to deeper prayer; to grow in our relationship with the God who loves us and accompanies us through all the seasons of our lives.

Reviews This attractive book is laid out in a formal way. Within that framework Barbara Mosse shares her free-ranging and compelling personal thoughts which draw the reader towards the contemplative. I will use this book for my own meditation and also with our Julian Group. The bidding prayers are an imaginative resource for those who lead Intercessions in Church.
