O'er All the Weary World is a lively collection of short stories for the Christmas season. These thought-provoking and resonant stories recount moments of enlightenment, incarnation, decision, and revelation--moments to which all human beings, by the grace of God, have access. With one exception, the stories are related to traditional Scripture lessons found in the common lectionary during the season of Advent. Each story may be used for contemplative reading, family storytelling, adult study groups, and in the worship setting.
