Mobile#2: "The Invasion of Light"

A piano composition for Advent, 2008.

"Somewhere between the darkness and the light. That is where we are as Christians. And not just at Advent time, but at all times. Somewhere between the fact of darkness and the hope of light. That is who we are.

'Advent' means 'coming' of course, and the promise of Advent is that what is coming is an unimaginable invasion. The mythology of our age has to do with flying saucers and invasions from outer space, and that is unimaginable enough. But what is upon us now is even more so--- a close encounter not of the third kind but of a different kind altogether. An invasion of holiness.That is what Advent is about."
