Sermon series design and staging for the 2013 Advent series, “Expecting a Miracle" for Eastbrook Church in Milwaukee, WI.

Our creative team chose purple, the traditional color of advent, and had the challenging task of marrying the imagery of the book of Exodus with the imagery of Christmas/Advent. 

We chose to go with a non-traditional staging design, with hand-made snowflakes hanging from the trusses among strands of white lights, partially obscuring a large star, representing Jesus.

Throughout the series, members of the congregation wrote their own expectations for the Christmas season on small stars, which we also strung from the ceiling.

Creative inspiration is always a gift to be received. We can’t achieve it; like grace, it is given and can only be received. What we can do is nurture openness & presence ahead of time, so that when inspiration comes, we are ready and willing.

I created this as a gift for my brother-in-law for Christmas. He’s an avid Chicago Cubs fan, and like any Cubs fan, loves Wrigley Field. The iconic Wrigley sign is showcased in this print, with a fun vintage feel that perfectly captures the authentic grunge of a ballgame at Wrigley (if you’ve been there, you know what I mean).
Available for $29 on Etsy. High-res
