Music stirs and touches the deepest longing of the human spirit. The hymns and songs of the Advent season can awaken our longings and touch our souls at any age. Our deep longings do not live in the smell of Christmas trees or the curiosity of what is inside the wrapped boxes. Our deep longings live in the hope of being released from resentments, being loved in relationship, feeling touched by God. This season we are closing worship with our own version of The Sun Will Rise by The Brilliance. As each week passes we sing a bit stronger, the song goes on a bit longer and more tears flow while together we WAIT WITHin advent for God’s coming.
