Make a collage during Advent. Clip pictures from magazines and other sources that symbolize what’s happening as you walk your Advent journey, gluing them to poster board. (Or create a virtual collage on Pinterest.) Perhaps a butterfly image stirs thoughts within you about the similarity between time spent in a cocoon and the darkness and waiting of Advent, for example.
What are the Advent songs and images living inside you right now? And what are they saying to you?
