Core Carols 9: "Silent Night"
We love "Silent Night" because a silent night is hard to find now.
Yet Bethlehem at Christ's birth was crazy loud compared to other spots of that time.
What was the noise in Bethlehem?
Mr. Bean shows how hard it is to have a Silent Night.
Any night in any little town two thousand years ago is bound to be peaceful compared to our noise of planes, trains, automobiles, alarms, heating and cooling machinery, and unceasing electronic encouragement.
Stop. Reflect. "Rest beside the weary road." We need a silent night.

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.
