THE COMMUNICANT December 2017

Advent Photo Challenge

Advent is a season for anticipation and preparation.  The Latin word Adventus means Coming, or Visit.  We look for the coming of the Lord as we prepare our hearts and our souls to live in God's kingdom on Earth.  We live this out in our preparations for the birth of Christ on Christmas Day.  Advent is a daily walk with God.  In our practical lives, we might be preparing for Christmas.  In our spiritual lives, we engage in expectant waiting and readiness.  We are looking for God in our lives.  

The 2017 Advent Photo Challenge is a collection of "God Moments."  These are photos and twitter feeds shared by parishioners as they walk the daily journey.  You may participate in the photo challenge every day, or any day during Advent. There are several ways to submit your photo:
