Advent: Psalm 40, Psalm of the Incarnation

Week two in the Advent series -- Psalm 40, the Psalm of Christ's Incarnation. 
This digital collage is an interpretation of verses 1b-2 corresponding to my church's sermon series through four psalms during the Advent season.

    "He inclined to me and heard my cry.
  He drew me up from the pit of destruction,
    out of the miry bog,
and set my feet upon a rock,
    making my steps secure."
Psalm 40:1b-2

Josh Kruger's sermon on this Psalm can be heard here.

Stephanie Shanks wrote a beautiful description of her project to facilitate the making of artwork in anticipation of Christmas during the Advent season. 
"What if art was just a way of turning prayers inside out, to be seen and shared? The Advent Art Project is a collection of “visible prayers” gathered from the church and displayed on the walls of our building to encourage each other and prepare our hearts for Christmas."
-Stephanie Shanks

Prayers turned inside out. Love that. So perfectly stated.
