Who is Santa really? What is Hope? How do we live in hope?
Show Notes

John uses the recent controversy around the Maori Santa (Hana Koko) appearing in a Santa Parade in Nelson to explore how advent helps us remember that Christmas is important, but it is not the point. Advent points to Christ in history, Christ in mystery and Christ in majesty. What does hope look like in all that? He then uses the stories of Robben Island and Hanukkah to explore Jim Wallis’s description of how to live in hope.
