For many of us the Christmas season is the craziest time of the year. Rushing from store to store, adding things to our lists faster than we can check them off. To make matters worse all of this chaos is surrounded by music filled with flying reindeers, talking snowmen, and vague sentimentality.
What if there was a better soundtrack for your Holiday season?
Songs for Advent is a free playlist you can stream on Spotify. Advent, formed from a Latin word meaning “coming” or “arrival,” is about the coming of Christ. It’s a celebration of the first advent of Jesus and the anxious awaiting of His second. The promise of Advent is not simply the promise of a baby in a feeding trough. The promise of Advent is the promise of a King - a King that is has come and is coming again and on that day will flood the earth with the light of his peace, justice, and love.
May these songs help you to reflect upon the promises of God and to anticipate the fulfillment of those promises with hope and wonder.
The King has come and the King will come again!
