‘Silent Night Carol’ events are happening across the country.
Even before the official launch, there’s been a huge response, so there is an expectancy that thousands of people will be at events all over the country this December, in football stadiums, schools, cathedrals and churches. There are even talks of flash mobs in shopping centres. Most of all it is important, particularly at this very troubled time, for people to discover the peace and hope found in knowing Jesus personally – supernatural peace that anyone who knows Jesus can experience even when you are surrounded by fighting. Songwriters Nick Herbert and Ben Cantalon wrote a new verse and chorus of Silent Night for the centenary of the 1914 Christmas Truce, a short moment of sanity amidst the madness of war.
