Visualizing the First Sunday of Advent - Hope
As we prepare to enter the Season of Advent, we wanted to showcase ideas for visualizing the First Sunday of Advent. The use of simple media and vibrant motions can help enhance the meaning and message of Hope that is focused on during the first Sunday of Advent. As Hope is the focal point, consider the words from Lamentations 3:21-24:
“But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
God’s mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in the Lord.”
The first candle lit during the season of Advent is purple. Look for media that speaks to that color. The coming king evokes a tone of royalty. Purple is a color that showcases royalty more than any other color. Use media that is inherently purple, or find media that you can hue change to get that purple tone you want. Another option is to keep it simple, with a more monochromatic/black and white option.
