I’ve blogged about Lutheran pastor Gaven Mize a number of times, highlighting books like God Loves me Such, My Little ABC Liturgy Book, My Little ABC Coloring Liturgy Book, and Beauty and Catechesis. Now he’s offering another: an advent devotional titled Awake, You Who Sleep: The Advent of the Christ.
I’ll give you the Lulu blurb since the book hasn’t made it up on Amazon yet:
Advent is always a busy time of the church year for pastors and laymen. Rev. Gaven M. Mize has brought some orthodox Lutheran relief to the busy season. In “Awake, You Who Sleep” Rev. Mize ties in a sermon from St. Augustine, scriptural readings, hymn options, and meditations to be used at home and in the church. This book is highly useful for personal pious devotion during the time of Advent preparation. The reader will find new pearls upon every read year after year.
Sounds good to me. 🙂 Keep up the great work, Rev. Mize!
Meanwhile, maybe I can start jotting down some poetry about “You who sleep.” What a great phrase/concept/starting place!
