Advent Windows (21)

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

St Alfege Advent Window Number 21 will be unveiled at 6pm on Tuesday, 21 December. Paul and Lucy invite you to  come over at 6pm for mince pies, mulled wine and assorted beverages.

This year’s theme is A Voice In The WIlderness. Window 21, Move On Up, is themed around the lyrics of Curtis Mayfield, the civil rights supporter, songwriter and visionary. Over the last year it’s easy to believe his civil rights message of moving up, achieving a higher consciousness, has faded away. But it still lives, sampled subliminally or obviously in recent rap tracks by Kanye West, Jay Z, Erykah Badu and many others. In the same way, Window 21 will present his messages, sampled with the aid of lights, lettering and sticky tape. Please come and join us!

“Out of the Woods”, is at 30a Crooms Hill.

Wilderness can describe a tangled, dark and wooded place, as much as an exposed and barren heath. The window presents images of hope that offer a ‘way out’ from the anxieties and dark distractions of our world.

This one is best seen after dark, so it’s a good job the opening is at 5pm – with warm soft and alcoholic drinks.
