Last year, my internship congregation got to do it.
|Early concept drawing|
|PDF'd and printed|
Everyone brought in the many Christmas advertisements they'd received, and over the four weeks of Advent, we cut out shapes and colors. We slowly assembled an icon -- a religious piece of art meant to point us to God. We took what the world uses to tell us we need more, more, more, and turned it into a reminder that we already have all that we need.

O come, o come Emmanuel.
