Advent Breathing Space: Visions of the Nativity

The first of our Advent Breathing Space candlelit Communion services took place yesterday evening. In these three services I will be reflrecting on three different classic portrayals of the nativity story in art. The first service looked at the image of Jesus as a newborn lying naked on the ground (see the example right by Fra Angelico) while Mary and Joseph kneel in prayer, an image that can seem rather odd to us - who'd leave a baby lying about like that, cold and uncomfortable...?

If you would like to read the talk, it is here on our sermon blog (the next two talks will be posted after they are delivered.)
