Advent 2009, Week 4: Born in a Stable

Inconsequential, or at the very least, anti-climactic: a child born in an animal’s shelter. It’s here we find ‘the hopes and fears of all the years’ wrapped in cloths, begging for a drink, all the while finally quenching the thirst of humanity. [Steve Tulloch speaking]

Advent 2009, Week 2: Just Like a Snow Plow
