For the 5th Day of Advent, I offer up the "Inward/Outward" blog, which is supported by the Church of the Saviour, from Washington, DC. Inward/Outward has daily quotes and excerpts from a wonderful array of spiritual fathers and mothers, from ancient times to the present. From Anne Lamott to Thomas Merton, from Parker Palmer to Rumi, from Abraham Heschel to Mary Oliver, the offerings are wonderful. I read them every day.
