A photojournal of the Wooster Square neighborhood in New Haven, Connecticut. And, occasionally a photo of New Haven, of course, of course.

The Church of St. Michael in New Haven has been around for over one hundred years. It is quite beautiful inside and at another time I will post photos. Today...just Advent doors.
The liturgical year for the church begins on the First Sunday in Advent which is four Sundays before Christmas. Each Sunday is counted down by lighting one candle on an Advent wreath. Hope is the first Sunday.
Purple is the color for Advent....NOT red and green! Purple signifies repentence, something that we reflect on as we patiently wait for the Christ child to come. Milo the Advent dog - he lives his life patiently waiting.
After serving congregations in Fairfield, Bridgeport, and Wilton, CT I am the Senior Redevelopment Pastor at Orange Congregational Church in Orange, CT. Prior to that I lived in Jerusalem (the real one) and I have three GORGEOUS children, the loves of my life.
