Advent Photo Project: #adventpeace
In the Christian tradition, the season of Advent is about waiting, about watching, about leaning forward. It’s a season that has become busier and busier for us as we prepare for the arrival of family, the holiday gatherings, and the celebration of the season.
One way to fight the busy-ness it to be intentional about the expectation. Kids have their Advent calendars. What about grown-ups?
Last year, my Advent calendar was Instagram. Thanks to my friend Winn Collier, I participated in an Advent “pic a day” Instagram project in which we watched for light. Every day, we snapped and shared photos of images that pointed us toward the Light of the Advent season.
This year, I decided to begin my own project, inviting friends old and new to join me. (Winn is still doing his own 2012 Advent “pic a day,” too.)
Our theme for 2012 is peace. Whatever that means to you on a daily basis, I invite you to mark the season with me every day by posting your photo and tagging it #adventpeace.
Post it on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. Follow me at @jasonboyett on Instagram. We’ll count down the days together.
