"Starting with December, [these meditations] generally follow the Christian year, with references as well to the ordinary activities of the turning seasons, national holidays, and our common experience. (The date after each title refers to the year of original publication.) My thanks and acknowledgements are due to the kindly publisher of the 'Country Guide' where this material first appeared in the course of my twenty-four years association with them as a monthly columnist. There are also echoes of fourteen years of daily broadcasts on the CBC (western region)." -- Preface.
