There are radio stations and internet streamig services exclusively dedicated to "Christmas music," both sacred and secular, offering non-stop holly, jolly melodies... and then there is the curious phenomenon of the church's catalog of Advent songs.  Spanning centuries and styles, the songs of Advent are often tinged with lament, with waiting, with expectation, and with a vulnerability as we hope for a future we cannot yet see.  In today's episode of Crazy Faith Talk, pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve make the case for singing these peculiar kinds of songs, even against the louder songs of sleigh rides, red-nosed-reindeer, and winter wonderlands that our wider culture has been singing since Thanksgiving.  Listen in to the conversation this week here on Crazy Faith Talk!
