Advent Week 1

Episode 3 | Released Dec 1, 2019 Advent Week 1 Special guest: John Greco

It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas in this long-awaited first Advent episode of the She Reads Truth podcast! Raechel and Amanda are joined by She Reads Truth’s content director, John Greco, as they step into the anticipation and celebration of the season. What is Advent? Why do we love it so much? What was it like to wait for the Messiah? Why did Jesus come? 

Clad in holiday shirts and socks, the group talks traditional Advent scriptures, favorite Christmas carols, and a little Charlie Brown and Linus too! John weaves a Scripture tapestry, Raechel stomps a dragon, and Amanda refuses to sing on-air—all while eagerly awaiting the arrival of Jesus, our Thrill of Hope.
