Christmas Plates & Christ the King

Episode 54 | Advent 2020: Jesus Christ Is Born | Released December 7, 2020 | Special guest: Natalie Grant and Bernie Herms

Join us for the second week of our Advent 2020 series as Raechel and Amanda celebrate the season with singer and songwriter, Natalie Grant, and singer, musician, and producer, Bernie Herms. In between singing Angels We Have Heard on High and Silent Night, the four friends talk about everything from the ideal time to decorate for Christmas and German Christmas traditions, to their shared desperation for celebration at the end of 2020. As they read Scripture together and rejoice in its power and authority, they consistently encourage one another to live out the radical love of Jesus.
