The First Sunday of Advent


Daily lectionary readings:

Psalm am: 146, 147  pm 111, 112, 113

Isaiah 1:1-9; 2 Peter 3: 1-10; Matthew 25: 1 – 13

It is also the beginning of my blog series Jesus Is Coming How Do We Draw Close.

This first post comes from my good friend Kim Balke who recently made me aware of Canadian artist  William Kurelek

The following video, a series of 20 depicting the Nativity as if Christ had been born in Canadian settings: an igloo, a trapper’s cabin, a boxcar, a motel makes a beautiful reflection for the beginning of Advent
