We’re busy and yet we want to connect with God. Listen in to these four weeks of short conversations that you can listen to in the midst of your real life with Ashley Hales and Jen Pollock Michel. We talk about the reality of December with busy schedules and messy pine needles and how to meet God in the real instead of the ideal.
Jen’s reflections on Advent are available to her email subscribers here.
Jen’s book, Surprised by Paradox (which has a section on the incarnation).
Ashley’s book, Finding Holy in the Suburbs, (which is helpful on consumerism and generosity this season).
Other works mentioned:
Edith Schaeffer, What is a Family?
