All this Advent, pastors Sarah, Erica, and Steve have been tracing the themes associated with each of the candles on the traditional Advent wreath--things like "hope," "peace," "joy," and "love."  But the celebration of Christmas isn't merely a listing of abstract concepts or spiritual virtues--it's centered on Christ.  And appropriately, many Advent candles have a fifth candle, waiting to be lit on Christmas Eve or Day, representing the light of Christ for whom we have been waiting.  But what does it mean to talk about Christ as "Light from Light," as the ancient creed does?  In this Christmas-tide episode of Crazy Faith Talk, join us in a conversation that ranges from the ancient poetry of John's Gospel to contemporary particle physics, as we turn our focus to the Light of Christ this Christmas.
