Advent is Coming!

 

It is not too soon to start planning for the season of Advent, that mysterious time the church sets aside to wait and watch and pray for God to be even more present in this broken and beautiful world. 

At SALT, we want churches to make the most of this sacred time by lighting candles, reading scripture, singing, praying, and using this sweet, new customizable short film!  We envision congregations using it: (1) on their website; (2) as a fun and vibrant invitation that church folks can forward to their friends, family members, co-workers, etc. on social media; and (3) as a beautiful invitation for your church's Christmas Eve Service(s).

As is our practice, we are making this film (customized with your church’s name, website, and Christmas Eve Service(s)) available to congregations on a sliding scale basis.  We’re suggesting $175 for churches with 50–100 members; $275 for churches with 100–500 members; and $375 for churches with more than 500 members - but, please know if this price point is not possible, we’re open to a “pay what you can” model.

So, let us know if you’d like to take part in this round of customizable films.  If you’re interested, please send along your church's name, website, time of Christmas Eve Service(s), "pay scale," and contact information to:

gretchen@saltproject.org

And, as always, thanks for your interest and support of the SALT Project - we couldn't do any of this fun stuff without you!

Peace and light,

The SALT Team

A big SALT thank you to Svatava Vizinová, from the Czech Republic, for offering up this beautiful creche that echos a popular folk tradition called Podmalby (painting on the reverse side of glass), found in Bavaria, Moravia, Slovakia, and Bohemia.  And, thanks to Alexis of Crechemania who has made this nativity and many, many more free and downloadble!
