Conversation at Shades Mountain Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama
Featuring Special Guest: Michael Adler
“It’s the best Christmas worship event I have ever experienced!” That was my assessment when I first attended Christmas At Shades in 2015. I have been back every year since and my appreciation has not wavered. It has deepened. It is that kind of “O holy night, where in heaven did those angels appear from” wow kind of a worship that enfolds and immerses you in to Advent.
For 19 years, Michael Adler has served as Worship Arts Ministry Pastor at Shades. He leads an incredible group of talented musicians, film-makers, actors, dancers, and artisans with “Soli Deo Gloria” in every pulse and breath. My brother Michael and I sat down to talk about worship, epiphanies, preparation, God with us, God for us, and a Bethlehem full of other wondrous anticipation swirling around a manger baby named Jesus. Take a knee and join us – and then come and worship with Michael and Shades on December 8!
