A message from Luke MacDonald from the weekend of June 17/18, 2017
It’s the flicker of a fire on the horizon in a freezing wasteland at night. A voice on the wind carrying a tune from a far off country. That’s what hope is like. It’s that persistent tug in your soul that whispers - “everything sad is coming untrue and just around the corner there’s something good”. Listen, think and be moved by these stories of hope as we conclude our Advent podcast series.
Rioting in the cities, injustice and corruption across the world. It seems like it's all getting worse, not better. The whole creation is growning, longing to be restored. We were made to long peace - it's not supposed to be this way. We are aching to see peace on earth. Because of that winter's night in Bethlehem, we can have peace. The peace that surpasses all understanding. Peace that is the calm assurance that what God is doing is best. Check out these songs and stories of Peace.
Over the next 4 episodes we’re going to look at each of the themes of Advent: Love, Joy, Peace and Hope in a different way than you've heard before. This podcast will lead you through the Advent Christmas season in a meaningful way. We’ll use story, song, poetry, and words of every kind to help us understand the beauty and power of what Jesus Christ did for us that very Christmas which still lives with us today.
