It's time to start fillin' our homes with the sounds of the Advent season!
I wanted to equip you all with the songs we will all be celebrating with. Some of them are traditional and familiar, but others not so much. And while worshipful mumbling is glorious and awesome, it doesn't have to be a resignation!
I'm excited to sing out with with joy together over a missional God who became man! Man... a MISSIONAL GOD WHO BECAME A MAN!
Here's what the air of our celebration will sound like:

Silent Night, traditional version
Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!
Seek the LORD and his strength;
seek his presence continually!
Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,
O offspring of Abraham, his servant,
children of Jacob, his chosen ones!
(Psalm 105:1-6 ESV)
