Joy to the World
As we continue or series on Christmas carols we look at Joy to the World, a classic, written by Isaac Watts in 1719, based on Psalm 98. Join us as Gunther Storbeck explores the hope of what is still to come, what true joy is and how to engage with it in every season.

This week we are looking at the 1744 advent and Christmas carol, “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus” written by Charles Wesley as he reflected on the needs of 18th century society and Haggai 2:7
