Advent & Christmas Services 2013

A nativity scene tucked away in a catacomb in
the Church of the Advocate in Philadelphia.
This church has some of the most amazing
mural art I've seen in a church

In beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God...What has come into being in the Word was life, and life is the liberation and survival of all people. The Word shines in the midst of violence and oppression and evil shall not extinguish us. ~John 1:1-5
