God Is With Us | Visual Resources for Advent 4, Love, and Both Lectionaries

This post offers visual resources for the week of December 18, 2022 in the Revised Common Lectionary and the Narrative Lectionary. It is the fourth Sunday of Advent and we light the candle of Love. It is also the great convergence where the Revised Common Lectionary and the Narrative Lectionary call for the same Gospel text. Matthew 1:18-25 tells the story of Joseph’s dream when a divine messenger tells him to take Mary to be his wife and they should name the child Jesus and call him Immanuel, God is with us.
