Lullabies & Longing for Jesus
Episode 55 | Advent 2020: Jesus Christ Is Born | Released December 14, 2020 | Special guest: Jillian Edwards
It’s the third week of our Advent 2020 series, and Raechel and Amanda welcome singer-songwriter, long-time She, and new friend Jillian Edwards to the podcast. Bonding over their love of pajama-themed Christmas gifts and holiday hymns, the three discuss the longing of that first Advent—about Jesus’s perfect love, His power to heal, and His role as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. Jillian’s ethereal voice mesmerizes the room as she plays her own song, Mary’s Lullaby, and the classic Away in a Manger. Join us as we lean into the longing of the first Advent and the promise of the next.
