Our series for Advent is working with phrases from some canticles (songs) of the Church for the season. The canticles themselves draw on scripture, with the opening canticle in this series ‘A Song of the Wilderness’ borrowing lines and ideas from the book of Isaiah (chapter 35.) The images for the series were all made in November on a stretch of the Cornwall coast. Most of the time the weather was coming in at the horizontal – giving a little hint of wilderness!
Advent is a time for waiting and for preparation, for self-awareness and for action. We encourage you to allow the words and images to shape your stillness and prayer. And so may you be blessed this Advent…
Grace and peace to you
