O Come Let Us Adore Him

O Come Let Us Adore Him

Christmas Day Piece

Each day of Advent—and culminating today on Christmas—in honor of Word becoming flesh, I sought, with art-making tools, to flesh out a word of the season. No conclusions, though. These interactive “art samples” are more about raising questions than providing answers.

So come, find what is worthy for you to adore–and a very Merry Christmas to one and all!

Advent Piece 17

1 Samuel 16:4, 13 notes Bethlehem as the site of King David’s anointing, Micah 5:2 prophesies it as the birthplace of Israel’s great ruler, and Luke 2:4, 11 names Bethlehem as the place of Jesus’ birth.

Bethlehem means “house of bread.” Bread, in a beautiful diversity of forms, sustains life in cultures around the world. Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.”  What does that mean for you and for me as we take and eat this holiday season?
