Hush: A Quiet Revolution

The most powerful revolution in all of history came as a quiet unveiling.

It’s that time again! Stores have started sales, lights are going up, and the radio is full of music about winter and Santa. For a lot of us, Christmas is one of the best times of the year! For others, we get agitated at the constant push of buy this and you need to be in the “holiday spirit”. No matter what your stance, Christmas has come a long way from where it used to be. In fact, the Christ part of Christmas seems to have fallen into the world of irrelevance. During this series, we are going to take a look at why having Christ in Christmas is still relevant today. Not just in a “sing songs about Him” kind of way, but in a world changing, reset your life kind of way.

There was a reason God’s plan unfolded exactly as it did. Just like current day politics, not everyone would receive word of the newborn King with good intentions. God chose to quietly gather a chosen few to welcome His newborn Son. The wise men found their way by following God’s silent signposts.
