Amidst reports of widespread ignorance of Christianity and boycotting of Nativity plays... Adrian can't resist getting rid of some myths... hard enough to get the trutuh across without having to navigate the lies. I heard of a carol service recently where the message of Christmas was said to be 'love your mum'... Similiarly missing the point we went to a couple of services a couple of years ago where we were told it was all about Mary, and then all about Joseph the next weekend (at a different church)! There's an elephant in the room.... Thankfully at the Exeter student carol service at the football ground it was all about Who is Jesus / Why did he come... a bit more like it!! Mythbusting from Reynolds:
2. Singing Angels?
3. Three kings
4. Silent Baby
5. Cold Night
Adam’s likeness, Lord, efface, Stamp Thine image in its place:
Second Adam from above, Reinstate us in Thy love.
Let us Thee, though lost, regain, Thee, the Life, the inner man:
O, to all Thyself impart, Formed in each believing heart.
