Christina will have 3 sessions covering:
- Hear the Song Resound: Music Listening as a Means to Confess Christ in our Culture Music is everywhere. Some we choose, but much is placed in our ears by others. Inundated with sound, Christians receive this God-given gift with joy, but we must also carefully learn how to listen. In consciously attending to the music around us we can not only hear our Savior’s voice, but also confess Him as our New Song.
- Through the Church the Song Goes On: A Singing Tour of Christian Hymnody Using a carefully curated list of your favorite hymns we will sing our way through the history of Christian hymnody to see how poetry and music have changed throughout the centuries while remaining constant in the proclamation of Christ.
- Guard Every Childhood Day: Developing and Utilizing a Children’s Core Hymnody Christians are formed by the music they sing as a child. By filling our children’s mouths, ears, and hearts with a small, carefully-chosen list of core hymns we provide them with a musical and theological education which will form their faith. We will examine this list of hymns and discuss the longterm benefits and methods of implementation.
