York Street Advent Preaching Program

Christmas is what you need. We need:
  • a Prophet who Challenges
  • a Song that Magnifies
  • a Hope that Satisfies
  • a Judge that Redeems
  • a Fear that Drives away fear
  • a Messiah who Saves
  • a Son who reveals
And so here is the preaching program through Advent and Christmas, starting SUNDAY

13 Dec (Carol Service 7PM) -- Luke 2:22-40

20 Dec (Advent 4) -- Luke 1:67-80
Zechariah: We need a JUDGE (to redeem our world)

24 Dec (Christmas Eve) 11PM -- Luke 2:8-20

Eggnog is like Mexican food in Australia, it is better to make your own...

Eggnog Recipe - serves 12

4 cups milk
5 whole cloves
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
12 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups light rum
4 cups light cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1. Combine milk, cloves, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and cinnamon in a saucepan, and heat over lowest setting for 5 minutes. Slowly bring milk mixture to a boil.
2. In a large bowl, combine egg yolks and sugar. Whisk together until fluffy. Whisk hot milk mixture slowly into the eggs. Pour mixture into saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 3 minutes, or until thick. Do not allow mixture to boil. Strain to remove cloves, and let cool for about an hour.
3. Stir in rum, cream, 2 teaspoon vanilla, and nutmeg. Refrigerate overnight before serving.
