This Sunday we had no message. Instead we had a children's musical featuring 48 kids who have been rehearsing since October 1.
However as a special Christmas treat have a listen to noted author Neil Gaiman's reading of Charle's Dicken's Christmas Carol (unabridged). His reading begins at the 10 minute mark.
Here are some books and resources we recommend for your own reflection and study:
Advent for Everyone by N. T. Wright. An inspirational guide through the Advent season, from the first Sunday in Advent through the Saturday after the Fourth Sunday in Advent. Popular biblical scholar and author N. T. Wright provides his own Scripture translation, brief reflection, and a prayer for each day of the season, helping readers understand Advent in the wider context of God's love.
How God Became King- Why we have all misunderstood the Gospels with N.T. Wright. This is a great introduction into the Kingdom of God and the meaning of the life of Jesus.
Who is Jesus is a video produced by Alpha... a GREAT introduction:
