The Other Side of Advent, Part 2: Light and Darkness // Kate Murphy

The Gospel of John 1:9-10
“The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.” 
As we hang our holiday lights, can we be sure to say we recognize Jesus’ light better than our ancestors did? What does it mean to call Jesus the light, and how can we make sure that we are not missing it, or resisting it?

The Other Side of Advent, Part 1: The Scandal of the Incarnation // Kate Murphy

The Gospel of John 1:1-10

As the world around us goes crazy, we are slowing down, praying big, and singing joyfully as we explore the other side of Advent. We’ll turn our eyes from the human side of the story that we all know so well and, in awe and wonder, turn to the opening words of the Gospel of John and behold the divinity of Jesus. What does it mean that the God who spoke the world into being is also the one we meet in the manger? Listen in and find out.
