I am excited to sit with this lovely book, Light upon Light, over the coming season of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. I love Sarah Arthur's literary devotions for the Christian calendar year. I just finished At the Still Point, her book for Ordinary Time, and earlier this year I read Between Midnight and Dawn during Lent and Easter. Arthur calls her work "a literary guide to prayer." It is is a treasure trove of literary gems perfect for meditation and reflection.
The pattern for each week's readings includes an opening prayer (a short piece of classical poetry), a psalm for the week, suggested Scriptures, five or six literary readings (some poetry, some fiction), time for personal prayer and a closing prayer (again a short bit of poetry).
In her introduction, Arthur gives suggestions for using the book. She also introduces lectio divina, which literally means divine reading, as a way of interacting with the texts. You might enjoy re-reading these posts about meditating on Scripture. Learning to Listen. Hearing God's Voice.
If you have a literary bent or are looking for a fresh eye on the season, I highly recommend this book.
And maybe I'll manage to write a few blog posts on my own meditations as I "breathe in the words of others."
