We don't know how many wise men journeyed to Bethlehem, but we do know that all Christians should be wise now. What does this mean? First seeing the star, seeing the divine in the world around us. Then the wise men followed the star: that is, we commit to following, seeking after God, and being willing to change direction to do so. Finally, wise people bow down and worship, and offer to him our gifts. In this way we become light bearers for the world. [ Organ - Epiphany.  ]

Passage: Luke 2:0
Duration: 19 mins 18 secs
That first Christmas, there was a lot of fear. But it didn't take long for fear to turn to faith. How was that possible? First, they listened. We need to hear the message God is providing (which starts, incidentally, with the reassurance that we need not fear his awesome presence). And the message is the good news that today is the day when a Saviour is reaching out, and coming to each one of us, personally. When we realise what this means, we can only join in the songs of praise, and prepare the way of the Lord. [ Organ/Choir - Christmas Day ]

Passage: Matthew 1:18
Duration: 18 mins 26 secs
If Christmas marks a special delivery from God to rescue us on earth, what were the conditions for that delivery? The first was Mary's pledge of obedience. Second was her life living into the purity that allegiance to God requires. Then there was the pregnancy, a miracle in itself, foretold by the prophets. FInally, there was the prophecy, which today is the mandate for the whole church. So each of us, now, is a special delivery person to tell the world about Jesus: Christ the Lord, the Saviour of us all.

Passage: Isaiah 35:8
Duration: 18 mins 18 secs
What does the Bible teach about the way we should walk? We know we will walk in hope, even through the desert. We know that redemption means we will walk into change: first, the change from death to life; and second, during this life, being transformed more and more into the likeness of Jesus. We know we will walk towards everlasting joy. And finally, we know that for now we have to walk with patience. [ Organ/Choir - Advent 3 ]
