Teaching and Expressing the Faith: Hymns in The Life of the Christian
Saturday April. 24, 2021 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Trinity Lutheran Church, Norman, Oklahoma
Topic: A look at how hymnody is shaped by the Scriptures, teaches us about our sacramental faith and can be an essential part of our devotional life. We will be reflecting on how hymnody provides us with the words to pray when we do not know what to pray and how our worship informs our sacramental faith. Then we will see how hymnody forms us for our lives as Christians in faith and good works. Our hymns are not just words that we sing on a Sunday, but they are part of the Christian’s entire life.
