Fourth Sunday of Advent

posted by Mike on December 20th, 2009

We’ve been using a booklet of Henri Nouwen meditations this Advent. He often counsels that we stay in the moment, and today, the fourth Sunday of Advent, Greyhound is doing their bit to keep me where I am both mentally and physically by cancelling bus service to Worcester due to snow. (I am in no hurry to ride on icy roads after my Christmas wreck last year.)

Christmas caroling

Today we celebrated the season by Christmas carolling at a local nursing home and at the homes of neighbors and friends.

I also wanted to share photos of a homemade Advent wreath and a sort of “Advent board” tracing the lineage of Jesus, based on a design by legendary Catholic Worker artist Ade Bethune.

Hope you all have a wonderful, safe week!

    Glad you got out caroling! We didn’t leave the house.
