Episode 55: L is for Light


[ download ]

During the season of Advent, we await the coming of our King, the Light of the world. As we wait, we sing hymns, reminding both our neighbors and ourselves of the message of salvation that we hear each Sunday and in each Advent service. The hymns we sing generally come from the Lutheran Service Book. We know our favorite Advent and Christmas hymns, and we expect our pastors to let us sing them. But are all hymns created equal? Pastor Riley and Kate discuss what makes a hymn great, good, or poor. Does the message that the hymn preaches matter? Or do our emotions trump the Word of God when it comes to our favorite time of year and our most favorite hymns?
