Lectionary Weeks: Fourth Sunday of Advent (Year A)

Here is a pack of Advent imagess based on the verse in Isaiah 7 - “the Lord himself will give you a sign". These were fired off by a suggestion by Dave Hopwood on the Area52 day when I was flipping through Unsplash photos. He picked out a photos of a neon bar sign and suggested this might be an approach to creating other signs around “Emmanuel: God with us”, which I developed further into the current idea.
The idea was to place that statement in everyday contexts, to emphasize that the Lord’s coming is for everyone, everywhere, in any circumstance or state of life. You could use them to accompany the Bible reading, or as a reflection, or in many other ways!

Below are some previews. Download all ten images as a zip file from above/right.
