Songs from a Strange Land: An Australian Advent Calendar
Scripture readings, quotes, photographs, poems, cartoons and songs take you from Advent to Epiphany with a particular emphasis on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Christianity, the Australian landscape and Creation theology.
Author, Celia Kemp writes:
This Advent, consider a pilgrimage to where you already are. Set aside time each day from December 1 through to January 6; the Feast of the Epiphany, which marks the end of the 12 days of Christmas.
Find a quiet place close by with some sort of nature component (a pot plant, a tree, a park bench, a beach, a back yard). If you can, place yourself where the sky meets the land.
Take a bible, a journal, a pen and this book.
Read. Watch. Listen. Stay awake. And see what happens.
