Advent Sanctuary Decorations

So one of the fun things we do at my church is this big round spinning mobile in the center of the sanctuary. It started as a Pentecost themed design, and we usually do it for Lent & Advent too. When the ceiling fans are turned on, it rotates slightly with the air current. It's really pretty in person- this year's is a little 'busier' than some years, but it's nice just the same (*IMHO* :) We have an ongoing 'friendly debate' about the colors of Advent- I always lean toward purple, and some lean toward blue ( which is what our paraments are) So when I make the mobile, there's a lot more purple involved :) Happy Advent <><


  1. So funny to find your blog. I am purplestamper and my blog is the colour purple. I am from Port Moody so close to the Pacific Northwest...I love stamping (hense the name) and am a Child of God too. So fun this world of technology. Have a great season celebrating the KING

  2. I love the Advent hanging on your blog! I'm also in the PNW and would love to connect about sanctuary decorations. I'm the chair of the Worship & Arts team at Wallingford United Methodist Church in Seattle. You can see photos of some of what we've done at

    I would love to connect with some other like-minded people who like to do more than conventional banners for sanctuaries. You can email me at spencer97m [at]


thanks for leaving some joy :)
