No, it isn’t Black Friday that begins the Christmas season, with manic shoppers trampling themselves; nor even the day after Halloween, when stores put up Christmas decorations. None of that has to do with Jesus. You know that.
Today, on the First Sunday of Advent, we sang this hymn in church: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. But we didn’t sing as beautifully as Christina Sonnemann. I discovered this a year ago from a friend’s blog (thanks, Peg!).
I hope you enjoy. It may seem odd, juxtaposing her between Waits and Marley (he’s up next) but you can only listen to one at a time anyway…
