This slim booklet is a seasonal extract from Reflections for Daily Prayer (Advent 2023 – Eve of Advent 2024). I have previously reviewed the full volume within the Transforming Ministry Advent resources feature on our website. As I wrote then,

If you have previously used this annual volume, you will know its great value in providing a focus on one of the daily lectionary readings (Monday-Saturday) for Morning Prayer. It helps to give rigour and discipline to daily worship within the rhythms of Anglican liturgy. Having used these reflections now for several years, I find that most of them stay in your mind throughout the day, and the finest stay for ever to be frequently re-told or recycled within sermons and talks… The whole book reminded me of the richness of God’s eternal word in scripture and the wisdom that accumulates in the minds of his devoted servants. Used well, this book will magnify your lectionary year.

The Lent reflections include memorable contributions from Rachel Mann, Mark Oakley, Bishop Rachel Treweeke and Holy Week reflections by Archbishop Stephen Cottrell. Highly recommended.
