Ev 114 Hosting Mary and Joseph: Posada—An Advent Experience for Your Community£2.77
In the increasingly commercialized weeks before Christmas, it can be difficult to make the coming of Christ visible amidst the festive clamour.
Posada—Spanish for ‘lodging place’—involves taking the figures of Joseph, Mary and the unborn Jesus on an advent journey out of church and into the public realm. A South American tradition dating back more than four centuries, Posada can serve as a form of outreach into the community, a means of making new connections and strengthening existing ones, and a way to find stillness in December’s busyness.
