4th Sunday Advent – “Messiah” Staged / Word & Music Contextualized in Gripping Manner…

This is not your grandmother’s version of the Messiah by G.F. Handel in any way, shape, or form. Here’s what one person wrote to describe the context set by the stage version:

There’s basically a businessman whose wife is cheating on him with his older brother. Also, his younger brother is a drug-addict pariah. One day, a business presentation goes bad and he is fired, destroying his whole career. He then, decides to commit suicide.”

I found it powerfully compelling –

Can the Word address humankind in our most difficult times?

What does it take for any one to recognize the Risen Christ?

Why do we miss him so much of the time?
