About the series:
  “Joy to the World,” a beloved Christmas Classic, turns 300 this year.  Hymn poet, Isaac Watt’s interpretation of Psalm 98 invites us to sing a “new song”.  Rather than “joy” being yet another word for “happiness,” we will discover that the depths of joy can be found especially in the midst of suffering, the work of justice, and the presence of compassion–all part of the coming of Jesus to this world and a message the world still so desperately needs.

Psalm 98 (translation, Nan C. Merrill)

“Make a joyful noise to the Beloved all the earth;

break forth into grateful song and sing praises!

Yes, sing songs of praise extolling Love’s way;

lift up your hearts with gratitude and joy!”

and Isaiah 2:1-5
