#adventbookclub 2014

Yes, I know it’s only August and anyone who mentions the C word should be severely dealt with!  But, in an attempt to get organised, and because I saw this book and liked the look of it, I have chosen what my Advent book will be.  As usual I will be blogging my reflections here and you are very welcome to join in, in whichever way suits you best.

I have chosen Walking Backwards to Christmas by Stephen Cottrell from SPCK (and thanks to Claire for her help)

partly because I have enjoyed other books written by Stephen Cottrell, and I loved the strapline,

For those who thought they knew the story well

This book takes a slightly different approach.  It is not a reading for every day, but eleven chapters, which may suit some people better.  By my reckoning that is three a week, but anyone can share their thoughts as they read at their own pace.

I intend to continue the Adventbookclub Facebook page and #adventbookclub on Twitter for conversation and shared reflection.

I would love anyone to join me.  Last year it worked really well as a shared journey through Advent together.

Once you’ve bought the book, I promise I won’t mention Christm*s or Advent again 🙂

  1. Excellent – I have ordered a copy of the book (supporting my local independent bookshop!) – and look forward to participating again! Life got in the way of Lenten blogging, but hoping Advent is more blessed.

    1. Hurrah! Life has a habit of getting in the way – hence why I’m trying to sort things now! And hurrah for local independent book shops 🙂

    1. I love the cover too! Stephen speaks about it in the introduction. Look forward to you joining us in any way you can 🙂

  2. Was I the only one expecting it to be walking backwards for Christmas across the Irish Sea?

    Really looking forward to reading it, and not the Goons version. Jx

    1. You’re not the first person to mention that! I’m pleading age on never having heard of it 😉
      Looking forward to having you along
