My first knowledge of Advent came in a cardboard calendar: 25 days, 25 paper shutters to open. One whole picture on the front, 25 solitary pictures behind those perforations. Open one each day, like a tiny gift. Then wait. Wade through light and darkness to the light of a new day.
It’s actually not a bad introduction.
This is my Advent calendar, one little picture per day. I don’t know what the big picture will look like yet. Maybe you’ll help me see.
