Today is the third Sunday in Advent, the Sunday traditionally known as Gaudete Sunday or Joy Sunday! We light the third candle in the Advent Wreath, the candle of Joy, not in denial of all that is heavy or difficult in our lives or our world, but as a sign of hope…hope in God’s joy, a joy that is deep and abiding and that can give us peace of mind and heart in the midst of the ups and downs of this life’s journey.
It has been the tradition of PBUMC to offer a Christmas musical during Advent. I understand this is one of the highlights of the year! Unfortunately, due to COVID, it hasn’t been possible to create a new Christmas musical this year. But that does give us the unexpected opportunity to revisit one of the musicals from the past. All that hard work! All that wonderful music! All that incredible talent! I have no doubt that it will bring joy to our hearts, smiles to our faces and maybe a few tears to our eyes to revisit “A Baby Changes Everything,” recorded in December 2019.
There is no audio-only recording—please watch the video of the entire musical presentation!
