I am the Voice
 
a painting by Hannah Garrity

inspired by John 1:6-8, 19-28

“Who are you? Who are you?
What do you say about yourself?
I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness . . .”
(John 1:19, 22)
John the Baptist arrived to pave the way for Jesus’ work, to

make the path straight. He baptized with water. He foretold a baptism of the Holy Spirit. He led people toward the work of the gospel. He inspired people to join the path that Jesus would tread-to remove the underbrush, to matte down the grass. He told of what was to come. He was all of these things and more.
He was the voice crying out in the wilderness.
How would you answer the questions asked?
I am an artist. I am a mother and a wife, a daughter and a sister. I condemn hate and profess love.
Iam not perfect; I seek to understand. I am inspired by the work of the gospel, the mindset of love.
Iam disenchanted by the contradictions in the bible, in my life, and in the world around me. I aspire to humility. I struggle with my faith, yet I struggle on. I am all of these things and more. I am a voice crying out in the wilderness. I am trying to make the path straight.
Who are you? Who are you? What do you say about yourself?
How are you a voice of one crying out in the wilderness?
-Hannah Garrity

Prepare the Way
BY LISLE GWYNN GARRITY

INSPIRED BY MARK 1:1-8 |

SECOND WEEK OF ADVENT
Through her painting artist Lisle Gwynn Garrity invites us to ponder:
What does it mean to “prepare the way” during Advent?
What changes need to be made for the “inbreaking of God to be truly known and shown?”
Garrity writes that in this piece, she has created an open wilderness-the space in which a new beginning emerges. “The sky swirls about, swallowed up by billowing clouds. The land converges with angled paths, but they and the sky gradually become straight along the horizon line. As you look at this image, my hope is that your eyes land on the straightened horizon. Perhaps this will remind us that our actions begin with sharing the vision of who is to come, to truly see possibility for all the crooked paths and twisted ways of our world to be made right.”
Let us prepare the way together this Advent.
