Far as the Curse is Found
Silence? This time of year? I’m John Stonestreet, and this is The Point.
The next two Saturdays on BreakPoint this Week you can listen in on a fascinating conversation I had with Chuck Colson and T.M. Moore about the theology of Christmas embedded in the classic carols. One of the classic Advent songs we discuss is Let All Mortal Flesh Be Silent. The words, taken from Habakuk 2:20, were used in early church services as far back as the 400’s and encourage us to be still and silent in the reality of God becoming flesh.
But for most of us, this season is anything but silent! It’s noisy and busy – we shop, travel, party, and blink and then poof it’s all over. For many of us, Christmas just happens.
That’s exactly why you should listen to these two shows I hosted with T.M. Moore and Chuck Colson. After T.M. walked us through these great Christmas hymns, Chuck and I agreed that we can never hear them the same again. And we’re far more ready for Christmas. Catch the first show this weekend either on radio or by visiting thepointradio.org. For the Point, I’m John Stonestreet.
