The French philosopher Paul Ricouer said that great texts have a “surplus of meaning.”  Over the centuries, the Advent and Christmas stories have inspired countless musical expressions (from Medieval chants to the music of John Adams and David Lang), as well as some perennially popular films including It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street.  We’ll go beneath the simple sentiments to uncover some profound insights into this season that we can carry into our everyday lives.

Steve Jacobsen, Co-Director at La Casa de Maria, is the former Executive Director of Hospice of Santa Barbara.
