Today I’m guest posting over at Mennobytes, which is the blog for MennoMedia (the publishing agency for the Mennonite Church in the USA and Canada). Here’s the intro:
This year from Advent to Epiphany, my church is following the journey of the magi, with a clue each Sunday for where our three wise men nativity figures will appear next. On the first Sunday of Advent, they were upstairs in a Sunday school classroom. This last Sunday, they were in my office–one on the low book-case by the door, and the other two on top of my tall shelving unit by the window. Each Sunday they’ll be in a different place in the church, until they finally arrive at the nativity scene in the sanctuary on Epiphany Sunday (January 5).
I was delighted when the chair of our Worship Committee suggested this idea. What a fun and creative way to celebrate the Advent-Epiphany season! The journey of our wise men also reminds me to pause, and you can read more about that here.
