Every year during the lead up to Christmas throughout the Advent period I try to find new ways and inspiration to bring something new to my understanding and appreciation of the Christmas story in the hope that I can once again capture in my heart the wonder and awe of the event that was Christ’s birth. Sometimes that has come from meditating on the relevant passages of the Gospel narratives and sometimes from delving into the Old Testament and reading the prophecies that point to Jesus’ coming.
This year I’ve gone back to the traditional carols again. I love to hear new renditions that bring a freshness and new life to them. Thanks to some friends I’ve discovered the three Advent Christmas EPs by Future of Forestry, which we’ve had on every day at home. It’s stunningly beautiful music that effortlessly draws me into worship each time I put it on. Please listen and enjoy.
