On this episode, we study the secondary option for the collect and propers for Christmas-day. These are to be used first if there are more than one Communion service on Christmas day (including Christmas Eve vigils). We discuss various types of Christmas celebrations, sobriety in conviviality, having confidence in the hope of salvation, being counter-cultural in our festal celebrations, the scandal of historical specificty in the Christian faith, Jesus as the Messiah of Israel, and God’s good will towards men.
