Introducing: The Advent

December 4, 2020

We wanted to let you know about The Advent - a new podcast series that takes you on a journey through the Bible 2020 readings from our next theme - The Incarnation...

Let’s have a tale whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. A tale of the mystery from which true godliness springs. A tale that is in one measure familiar but, in another, strange and fresh. Because everyone needs a story about light, and presence and hope in these dark days.

The Advent is a Bible 2020 production brought to you by the Scottish Bible Society. Written and directed by Fiona Stewart. Performed by Fiona Stewart and Cameron Potts. Engineered and produced by Alasdair Wallace.
