A beautiful wreath was given to me on this first Sunday of Advent by Christine a few years ago. This together with the Christmas carol “People Look East” inspired this mosaic.
It is a fusion of eastern and western traditions…
“People, look East, the time is near
Of the crowning of the year.
Make your house fair as you are able,
Trim the hearth and set the table.
People, look East and sing today:
Love, the Guest, is on the way.”
–Eleanor Farjeon [1881-1965]
