Grace - fresh vital worship since 1993

December 2022: Advent Grace TV

Grace December 2022 Advent Grace TV flyer

If it's hard to see where God is in current events, and hard to feel hope for the future, imagine what it was like to hear nothing from God for four centuries. Centuries full of empires and atrocities, with only the long-unfulfilled words from the past to feed faith.

And then something happened (so small that hardly anyone noticed at the time).

This was a version of December 2009: The Even Greater Silence, which seemed very relevant again to our time. The 'Grace TV' format is just visuals and music - the congregation watch and listen - maybe 'Grace cinema' would be a good description.

Slideshow here. Several of the backgrounds were movies. The 'black hole' was footage of 'Point of No Return' by Ryoji Ikeda.
