Advent Contrasts

As Advent draws to a close my Twitter feed is full of contrasts. From Elanor Parker there is this beautiful reflection on Our Lady in Advent, full of biblical and Anglo Saxon text and imagery.

Then there is the Christingle Selfie Station at Christ Church Southgate.

This surely is the thing about incarnation. It is for all cultures, high and low, and for all people rich and poor. 

Meanwhile there are also tweets about people getting engaged in all sorts of care for others on the one hand, and participating in glorious acts of worship on the other. Sublime liturgy and social action are all part of the same thing. God with us touches every part of our human lives and is Good News for all.
