Too often Advent and Christmas are subsumed into the flow of a capitalist logic. Conventional narratives overpower the scandalous story of Christ. In this Podcast, Rev. Dr. Rob Fennell speaks about how Advent can disrupt this. He proposes an apocalyptic perspective that speaks of a scandalous reality being revealed in our midst. This reality - the reality of the incarnation - refuses to be incorporated into conventional stories. How can we participate in it, disrupting the powers that hold us captive? Does social unrest in France speak to a need for something to give us genuine hope for change? Can a helpless infant born to an unmarried teenage mother offer this hope?
