Advent means arrival or coming. During this sacred season, we actively recall the arrival of Jesus as the Word made flesh, and we joyfully await his final return at the end of the age. But as we remember the past and anticipate the future, we are also attentive to our divine encounters in the present, the ways God "arrives" in our everyday lives. Amy Ekeh's Advent, Season of Divine Encounter helps us look closely at three key Scripture passages to recall, recognize, and anticipate the ways God comes into our lives and our world.

"Thanks to my participation in our parish program using Advent: Season of Divine Encounter, this past Advent was my most peaceful one in my 74 years. The scripture readings inside came to life for me and made me realize the many gifts that I have been given over the years. God's presence in my life was the best present I had this Christmas!"
Carolyn M., Bible study participant, Wallingford, CT

"Advent: Season of Divine Encounter was a rich resource for our parish-wide Advent retreat. Using a chapter a week, Amy Ekeh's reflections drew us into a deeper encounter with our God who has chosen to dwell with and within us. Her questions accompanying the text kicked off wonderful small group faith-sharing discussions, and her suggestions to extend the themes into our daily lives helped us incarnate the Scriptures passage we reflected on each week. And the clear organization of this series made it easy to recruit leaders!"
