For Unto Us a Son is Given …

by Richard Long,

  I was asked to be a guest preacher at a local congregation here in Ottawa yesterday.  Being Christmas Sunday, the challenge before me was to speak about this grand theme. 

  Fortunately I had been inspired by listening to Handel’s Messiah earlier in the season, so I chose as my text the prophecy of Isaiah from chapter 9:1-7, especially focusing on the 4 names of the royal child: Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

  I began my message by playing an audio version of the relevant portion of The Messiah.

Here it is on Youtube performed by the London Symphony Orchestra.  Enjoy!
