The slides and videos in this series come from recent exploration of "The Upper Room Rockers" concerning classic Christmas carols. We touch on the often surprising origins of these songs, their use of what's in the Bible, and their guesses beyond what's in the Bible. Today's entry is: "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing".
Question: What is a "herald"?
In 1965, "A Charlie Brown Christmas" changed all the words to "loo".
Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus,
who, though he was in the form of God,
did not regard equality with God
as something to be exploited,
but emptied himself,
taking the form of a slave,
being born in human likeness.
- Paul, in his letter to the Philippians
What do you call these lines coming out of the sun?
Here is another name for them.
At The Surge we love doing things together... that includes writing a blog! Here are a few of our main contributing authors:
Our fearless leader, Dwaine is the lead pastor at The Surge. His experience in counter terrorism with the CIA prepared him for ministry and he likes dogs and babies even more than E does.
E (short for Eric Reiss) is the Wingman at The Surge and likes dogs, music, Mexican food, his wife Karen and his little girl Evangeline... not necessarily in that order.
