Explore Advent's rich themes with Mapping Advent
Posted on Thursday 1 November 2012
'Mapping Advent' is a new FREE resource, launched today by the Diocese, which explores the themes of Advent through Biblical reflection, art, poetry and music.
It may be useful to those who lead worship, lay or ordained, and is perfect for any individual or group wanting to reflect afresh upon Advent and live more deeply ‘in the season’.
It is a pack of four 'maps' each dealing with one of Advent’s many themes:
- Watching and waiting
- Preparing a place
- The need for change
- Saying yes.
Some of the reflections, readings, poems, music and art identified as relevant to one theme will also speak to another. However, the material does broadly mirror one traditional Advent progression - from the waiting people of God, to the prophets, to John the Baptist and to Mary.
