1/4 — Week one of Advent. This was my only plan for our altar this Christmas season. This was done at midnight before I had to strip the church, and I was under strict instructions to keep the decor simple. I have no idea how I came up with this. I just kept seeing the Bethlehem skyline in my mind, knowing that all of us were about to make this journey. I cut one of my son’s black bedsheets up, and … well, this. See the subsequent three photos on this board to see how this progressed.
