The Fourth Sunday of Advent, Year A (December 22, 2019)

December 13, 2019

For the "preaching season" that runs from The Fourth Sunday of Advent through Christmas and the Epiphany, John and Delmer offer an overview of the themes for proclamation during this time. Closing out the year is a haunting melody that reminds us of the darker side of the Christmas story, Herod's action against innocent children and the flight into Egypt of the Holy Family: Who Will Save the Children? composed by Joel Emerson from the musical, Mary and Joseph. Performed by the Children's Choir of Brook Hollow Baptist Church in Nashville, Tennessee.
