“Haphazard By Starlight” by Janet Morley
recommended by Dorothy Roberts
If you enjoy poetry and are looking for a new angle on Advent to Christmas, this book might be for you. I was introduced to it several years ago and have used it with pleasure every Advent since.
There is a poem for each day from Advent to Epiphany, covering many themes associated with the season, but not necessarily by a Christian poet. Some will be familiar; others not. Some are easier to understand; others more difficult, but the commentary carefully unpicks and explains the meaning linking it to experience. Each day ends with a personal thought or question to consider.
Go on! Why not give it a go? You may find you really enjoy it.
The book is available from the Huddersfield Christian Bookshop or online.
