A Gift Beyond Measure – Jan. 1, 2017

Rachel Taylor speaking at Raleigh Mennonite Jan. 1, 2017Rachel Taylor takes on the persona of a playwright from Coventry 600 years ago to tell about the creation of the Coventry Carol and remind us of the incredible gift of the Christchild.

The song gives voice to the anger of the women whose children were killed by King Herod, as told in Matthew 2:13-23. Even more, it’s a lullaby about the absolute, total love of God our mother who loves us so much she can’t be satisfied with leaving us to the powers of sin and death, but sent her own child to be with us in the mess our sin creates.

In the midst of the message Pam Bruns sings the haunting lullaby.
