It’s Christmas day and to bring the advent calendar to a close, I’ll end as I began, with a gorgeous painting from Rembrandt. The Holy Family depicts Mary and Joseph back home with their son and Mary’s mother, Anne. After the roller-coaster of nativity events and emotions, it is time for this family to get on with their lives. And so we leave them there, in this scene of domestic peace and normalcy.
We hope you have enjoyed this advent blog series – have a lovely festive time and we will be back in the new year with more theology blog offerings from Auckland.
