With the advent of the Christmas season upon us, I thought I would share the updated holiday playlist that is currently in rotation here in our home. At present it consists of 100+ songs, totaling over 6 hours of music.
For me personally, I wanted a playlist that would center my thoughts on the Source of our celebration. So if you listen to these songs, you will quickly discover that there are no Santa references, no jingle bells, none of that type of stuff. Not that I don’t love sleigh rides, mistletoe, snowmen, and all the other wonderful, fun traditions of this time of year. I do! And I have a library of music built up over the years with hours upon hours with all those wonderful, traditional, more secular carols that I still listen to somewhat regularly. You probably do, too.
But that’s not what this particular playlist is about.
The message in this music has made a difference in how I have approached worship from the beginning of Advent through the entire Christmas season. Bear in mind that as it is my playlist, it does cater specifically to my musical tastes– which lean more toward the indie, folk, & contemporary Christian genres. So apologies if that’s really not your thing. Also, just for your information– the tracks from The Brilliance were not in the Spotify catalog at the time of this posting and were added to the playlist from my personal collection. Therefore, they may not show up on your personal Spotify playlist. But if you’re into indie music, check them out via the link below. Love them.
I hope you enjoy.
Have a blessed Christmas season!

If for some reason it is not letting you listen from here, you can also search Spotify for the playlist “Contemplative Christmas.”)
