Art for Advent

I am enjoying using art as a way of entering into Advent.

This Jesuit site uses classical paintings with very helpful commentary and additional meditations if you want to dig deeper. "Prepare for Christmas and deepen your experience of the Advent season this year with Arts & Faith: Advent. Each week we’ll provide a video commentary about a work of art inspired by the Sunday Scriptures. Use these videos to take a new look at this season of hope and preparation through the lens of sacred art."

If you are more interested in contemporary art you can sign up at this site for World Vision NZ's series of Advent scriptures and reflection questions with art by Chinese artist He Qi  which will be sent to you by email each week.
