Virtually Advent

This week begins our prelude to Advent. While the stores have already decked the halls and begun the annual onslaught of post-Halloween Christmas music, we in the Church are slowing down our pace to settle into the Advent season...that time of watching and waiting, of longing and expectation.

In preparation for our season of Advent, we at CWM, are beginning a virtual Advent reflection here on this blog in preparation for this new season of worship.

We invite you to join us in crafting our Advent season together by reflecting on the following questions here in the comment section of this blog.
  • What hymns and readings do you most want to experience during the Advent season?
  • As you read the lectionary readings (Advent 1, Advent 2, Advent 3, Advent 4), what images strike you? What themes emerge? What visions come to you?
  • How do you imagine our worship space for the next four weeks?
  • What does Advent mean to you?

I suppose my comments don't count because I'm not physically there. So I'll take advantage of that to be as outrageous as I want to be.

1. Rebel Jesus - Jackson Browne (It might not be in our hymnal though...wink)

Yeats - "The Second Coming" "And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"

2. "Wow, this whole messiah is coming thing is totally not what we're expecting is it?"

3. The space should be ensconced in purple and maroon velvet. (yes, ensconced)

4. Re-examining the flip side of life and turning the "usual symbols of the world" on their head to find new meanings that bring newness into the world.
