Back in September, when the irrational and ineffective COVID-19 inspired restrictions on public life were less stringent than they currently are here in Bavaria, our neighbor, Johannes Mair, had a moment of inspiration. We were standing around in the driveway in front of the Koinonia Christian community house here in Biburg when Jo Mair repeatedly counted the windows on the side of the house facing the street.
“24. Hmm. We’ve got 24 windows. Like an Adventkalender. We could turn the house into a living Adventkalender,“ he mused. That afternoon, I didn’t give the idea much thought but Jo came to the next house meeting with a detailed proposal for creating this living Advent Calendar using the house’s windows, having public readings, music, even a larger outdoor creche. We would invite everyone in Biburg and nearby villages and arrange it as a kind of evangelistic event, as well. The house leadership thought this was a great idea.
