The newly released Godspace Community Cookbook is unquestionably a community cookbook with recipes created by readers, authors, and friends of Godspacelight. Our community spans the world, so we asked for recipes that reveal the different cultures and traditions we come from. Contributors from the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K., Norway, Malta and South Africa provided not only recipes but also lots of fun stories and anecdotes to go with their recipes. These stories are inspiring to read as they give us insights both into the contributors’ lives and their cultures. And the recipes themselves are delicious to make.
This bundle includes the Lean Towards the Light this Advent & Christmas devotional book and journal for Celtic Advent, Advent, and Christmas through Epiphany! Each day has a reading of either a liturgy, reflection, poem, or prayer that correlates with the journal which includes scripture, questions, and suggested activities. Advent marks the beginning of the liturgical year. In the Western church, it begins four Sundays before Christmas Day. For Orthodox and Celtic Christians, it begins the evening of November 15th – 40 days before Christmas Day. Advent is a season of waiting. Not passive, idle waiting but an active time of preparation and prayer. We prepare to celebrate our remembrance of Christ’s birth, welcome him afresh as savior and anticipate his return when the fullness of God’s redemption will be revealed and all creation will be made new.
