Advent Podcast - Into the Slop

The season of Advent, our time of preparation for Christmas, begins this Sunday. I read an article recently that described how 2020 has felt like Advent all year, with so many things happening that have made us cry out for the Lord all the more, desiring his peace, comfort, and joy.

If any time in life should stir our deep longing for the coming of the Messiah, 2020 is it. So many things have reminded us of how broken the world is, of how much healing is needed, of how little control we have over life.

The good news is that Jesus came to get messy. He came to enter into all of our brokenness and sin in order to rescue and save us. It's such good news! But most of us have trouble letting Jesus into the mess. Even though he was born in the stable, we get uncomfortable with the thought of him entering the messy stable of our hearts and lives. But if we don't let him, how can we be saved?

So to help you welcome Jesus into the mess of your life this Christmas, we decided to produce a new Advent Podcast called "Into the Slop."

Each episode features a real-life testimony about letting Jesus into the mess of life, the good things he does when we let him in, and what it looks like to let him in.

Please subscribe using any of the links here and get ready for a reverent but realistic Advent podcast to help you welcome Jesus into the messiness of daily life. There's no better preparation for Christmas!


God Bless,

Fr. Erik
