Just got to today's Advent reading on Awaiting the Good News. It is by far the best Advent prayer book I have ever used. Maybe the best daily prayer book ever. I have to force myself not to jump ahead to the next day's reading. Using the airplane example today was so effective. Raised thoughts of looking jealously at the first class passengers as I walk to my economy seat. And the idea of giving up a First Class seat would never enter my mind! But it's those little radical acts of love that say bring Jesus into the world.

Thanks for a great little book.
