Additional Poster Details

Poster 1: Keep Awake We begin our Advent Journey with the reminder (and exhortation) to “Keep awake – Keep alert!” Our God is a God who constantly looks for ways to surprise us and catch us off guard. The Holy finds its way through cracks, and if we are awake and alert, we have a better chance of seeing God show up in all of the large, and small, ways that God makes Godself known to us.

Here in this poster, we have a group of people looking to the heavens and keeping watch and staying alert (inspired by Isaiah 64:1, “O that you would tear open the heavens and come down…”).

Scripture found in poster: Mark 13:24-37
Poster size: 3'x2'

Poster 2: Prepare

When we think of John the Baptist, we may imagine that no one could miss him because he was so eccentric. But he was also out in the wilderness, and while people came to him to be baptized, there were probably many others who weren’t paying enough attention to know about him.

John’s message to the people of his day, and to us, is to “Prepare!” And that is what we do during Advent – we are preparing ourselves, our families, our communities, for the birth of love into this world.

Here in this poster, we have John the Baptist, out in the wilderness by the River Jordan, ready to baptize those who would make the journey to be baptized.

Scripture found in poster: Psalm 85:1-11, Mark 1:1-8 and 2 Peter 3:9
Poster size: 3'x2'

Poster 3: Do Not Be Afraid

“Do not be afraid” is a common refrain used throughout biblical stories and one that we need to hear over and over again. In our world today, and in a world that we fear and imagine is possible in the future, we need to be reminded not to be afraid.

Here in this poster, we have the angel Gabriel coming to bring this important message to Mary, as Mary’s life changes forever with the news of the child that will be born, Jesus.

Scripture found in poster: Luke 1:26-38 and Psalm 89:1
Poster size: 3'x2'

Poster 4: My Soul Magnifies the Lord

If we accept the angel’s invitation to “Not be afraid” – this can often put us in a posture to be more receptive to what God might have for us. We see this in Mary’s response both to the angel’s exhortation to not fear and the news that she would bear a son and name him Jesus.

Mary’s response is “My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.” This is not the response from someone who is living in fear.

Here in this poster, we have Mary responding to the angel Gabriel’s news for her. We can see a look of contentment on her face as she ponders all of these amazing words.

Scripture found in poster: Isaiah 61:10 and Luke 1:46b-55
Poster size: 3'x2'

Poster 5: The Christmas Story

From the decree of Emperor Augustus to Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem, to the birth of Jesus, shepherds, angels and more, our fifth poster walks people through the Christmas story. Surrounding the illustrated story, we find scripture references that tell different portions of the biblical prophecies and promises of the Christmas story.

Scripture found in poster: Isaiah 9:2,6, Luke 2, Titus 2:11, and John 1:14
Poster size: 6'x2' (your downloads include both a 6'x2' file and the illustration split up into two 3'x2' files)

Poster 6: Reflecting on your Journey

As we move from Advent and Christmas into Epiphany and a new year, this final poster will give your community the chance to do some reflecting on the themes of Advent in their own lives and what it means for them moving forward into the new year.

As you can see below, this poster’s primary purpose is to serve as a tool to prompt ideas, prayers, conversations, and hopes for the upcoming new year.

Participants will be encouraged to write or draw their responses to the following four questions:

  • Keep Awake: What are you watching for?
  • Prepare: What are you preparing for?
  • Do Not Be Afraid: What do you need to stop fearing?
  • My Soul Magnifies the Lord: What are you praising God for?

Poster size: 6'x2' (your downloads include both a 6'x2' file and the illustration split up into two 3'x2' files)
