Advent-2: Advent...Come again?

I was raised in the Christian tribe and then wandered further in search of other tales...other story lines...other ways to SEEEEEEEEE...


That said, there are significant (to me) parts of the original stories I was given that I keep coming back to...and seeing them with NEW EYES...


One of these is the value of times of reflection...pausing...slowing down...preparation

And these are not unique to Christianity...They're essential to all humans...


"advent" - lowercase



"Advent" - Uppercase



I object! (editorial comment)

I take exception to the naming of the time between Easter and Christmas as "Ordinary Time"...and the Sunday of the week prior to Advent as the "last Sunday of ordinary time"...

  • As I get on in years, NO Sundays...in fact, NO days are ordinary...Agreed?


Prepare the way...


This year is the 50th anniversary of Godspell's 1973 release.







Shifting now to an Australian John the Baptizer...


"Come people, come now people...We are ONE..."


"Come people, come now people [x3]

Come Spirit through these people

Come people, come now people

And I believe we are one and we are sacred [x3]

I will hold you close [x2]"



...a little child is the first to recognize...and follow...







So... People Get Ready...
