Christmas Retreat: Christmas in Popular Song

Friday-Monday, Dec 23-26, 2016

Songwriters of popular music try to capture the meaning, joys, and sorrows of Christmas. Some songs are widely known, whereas others would only be familiar if you knew the singer/songwriter. In any case, you would not hear them sung in a church service.

As part of the Christmas season, we will listen to some of these songs and discuss what the writer is trying to express, and we will have the opportunity to reflect on our personal experiences.

Led by Craig Gustafson, a member of Grace, Scarborough, and Parish Administrator at St. George on Yonge.
