This year, the “joy” week in Advent includes a passage from the prophet Zephaniah. The beautiful and uplifting words console us, but when we set them against the backdrop of life at the time, they take on deeper meaning. In this podcast, we consider how Zephaniah’s words of joy fall right in the middle of the mess, and how we might look then for Jesus adventing in to the midst of all we’d prefer to exile.

The podcast also includes a rendition of Jon Thurlow’s That’s When He Comes by David Darnell.
