I find myself in this conversation hoping to see something different about this holiday season with new eyes to see and re-imagining what it might be like to celebrate the Advent season with a fresh perspective. I am a graduate student at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California though I am originally from the mitten state of Michigan (where it actually snows and becomes real cold…haha). I get the opportunity to study theology and culture and how one can combine the two. One might think being in Seminary would offer a whole new perspective on Christmas but I think when it comes to a break in my schedule I want to run from all things Theological. So here is to hoping for a fresh perspective and the still soft beauty of why I continue to search after Christ.
