Advent is a time of waiting and preparation. Suffice it to say, this Advent has certainly been a season of waiting, and perhaps our preparations look a little different this year. Surely, our times of gathering as a congregation have been sorely tested over the past nine months. And yet, we are still the church who the Holy Spirit calls, gathers and enlightens.
As we wait in expectation for the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, our musicians will be preparing a little visual and auditory gift for us. What we are asking you to do is simply send us 1-2 (no more) photos of a Christian Advent or Christmas symbol you use in your home. (Advent wreath, nativity set, tree, ornaments, luminaria, etc.).
The photos will be compiled and set to music (similar to what was done last spring with the photos of crucifixes) with a release date of early Christmastide. And if you are reading this in the future, look what was created…Holy Cross Christmastide 2020
What you can do: Take 1-2 photos (please limit) and send them to [email protected]
Deadline for submission of photos: Sunday, December 20.
