Advent Week One: Hope


Today we begin the Rabbit Room Advent Calendar 2016 with a verse by Jen Yokel and an image by John Hendrix. (Click the image to enlarge.)


Each week this December, The Rabbit Room will combine an image and a verse, celebrating the coming of the one who restored humanity to hope and glory! We want you to be a part of this celebration. Here’s how:

  1. Share the image online. We’ve formatted the image and verse so that it can easily be shared as an image on social media without clicking through to the blog.
  2. Share your own advent-themed art! Your favorite poems, paintings, sketches, quotes, recipes… they are all welcome in the comments section below!

The Savior has come. Rejoice!

    Having just finished reading through the Bible in 90 Days yesterday, I love this lyric and image. It captures what my heart has been feeling these past 3 months.  Excellent work, Jen and John! Praise even more the excellent story and work of Christ!

    Jody – The verse is finished in the text on the image: “to hear the call of great David’s greater Son.” It took me a moment to see it, too! Then I remembered John Hendrix’s Miracle Man often has words in the images and found it!

    I love this piece. Just shared it (and the project) with my church as an Advent resource.

    Advent has captured me for many years now and this is a powerful piece of art and poetry!  Thank you for sharing it with us and spurring us on to create during advent too!

    Yep, @carrieg is correct! Actually, I wrote the whole poem around that one line. Hendrix art is a treasure hunt. 😀

    I’ve read the next two poems and they’re awesome… looking forward to seeing what they look like with the art!
