christmas is not the whole story. it began before and continues after. it is a narrative that includes you and me, waiting and wondering too. my hope is that by framing these familiar carols in the scope of that story, with original and unfamiliar songs before and after, the familiar will be made new again, and the experience of anticipation and arrival, and the hope for better things to come, would be yours again this christmas. for the king has come, and the king is coming. hallelujah.
