The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.”

And let the one who hears say, “Come.”

And let the one who is thirsty come;

let the one who desires take the water of life without price.

Revelation 22:17



For Advent this year, Church of the Cross has been blessed to display beautiful Advent Banners made by Linda Hammer.  These banners convey so many thoughts and feelings about our longing and hope for Christ’s coming.

For this blog post, we just wanted to let you view the banners again,  and then we hope that you, the readers, will share, in the comments below, your thoughts, feelings, and reactions to this wonderful artwork.  What has struck you about this artwork?  What do they make you feel?  How do they speak to your desires for Christ’s return?



Also, please share any prayers that come to mind as you ponder these banners and Christ’s return.
