RRC staff miss having Stephen Cherry in the North East but we can remind ourselves of his insightful mind and sensitive theology with his ‘Barefoot Ways’. This concise little book contains material for every day from the start of Advent, through Christmas & Epiphany and all the way to Candlemas on February 2nd. With a poem, meditation or prayer for every day, this is a companion piece to “Barefoot Prayers” which does the same for Lent and Easter. Each day’s piece is presented by itself with no further comment, leaving the reader to reflect for themselves. Despite the way it leaves the reader open to make their own responses it is a very focussed book and comes highly recommended.
