For the born again believer, December is one of the busiest times of year. Each year our ministry engages in a myriad of Christmas activities with the intent of bringing the good news to our city. This year was no different. We had a very busy month with concerts, multimedia programs and various outreaches.
Advent time in Zagreb is a special time of year when the whole city is decked out in lights and there are many holiday activities such as live concerts in various locations, ice skating in the town square, a Christmas open air market complete with stands selling traditional food, sweets, ornaments and other Christmas wares. For several years now, our church band, Bez kompromisa, has participated in the city's Advent program, hosted on Zagreb's main square, by performing Christmas and contemporary Christian songs. This year we were given almost an entire hour in their program. On Thursday, Dec. 17th, at 7:00pm Bez kompromisa had the opportunity to perform on their outdoor stage on the main square and sing about the newborn King who became the King of Kings. As is usually the case, quite a crowd of people gathered on the square during this time and we had the opportunity to proclaim the Gospel through music.
