Music is such an important part of Advent and Christmas. Can you imagine Advent without "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"? How about Christmas without carols like "O Little Town of Bethlehem," "Silent Night," and "Joy to the World"?
It pleases the Lord Jesus when we sing of his coming with carols we know by heart. It pleases him even more when we think about the words we are singing.
In 24 reflections on well-known carols and Christmas songs, James Howell explores the birth of Jesus. He ponders the meaning of certain phrases from these songs and relates them to our daily lives.
Our eCourse includes weekly video introductions from author James Howell, beautiful recorded renditions of Christmas songs, audio recordings of weekly prayers, all of the daily readings included in Howell's book, and a place for group discussion.
The four weeks are arranged by themes:
The Men (Joseph, shepherds, magi)
Join James Howell and new or old friends in this rich remembrance for the Advent and Christmas seasons.
