Third Sunday of Advent (Year A)

By the time the third Sunday in Advent arrives in churches this week the world is busy reminding us of all the shopping yet to be done. On Sing For Joy, however, you can set aside busyness for a few minutes and contemplate the message and music of the season. I invite you to join us.
