Hymns: Tradition and Change

Rev. Chandler Stokes

Sermon     hymns Music
Sunday, January 19, 2014

A sermon by Rev. Chandler Stokes on Psalms 46 and 90:1–6 and A Mighty Fortress is Our God and Our God, Our Help in Ages Past. This week begins a new series looking at the hymns of our faith alongside Scripture. Winter tends to be an introspective time, and so our worship in January and February has become a time when we focus on “basics”—the core of our tradition. The hymns in the series are those that this congregation has sung consistently for at least the last decade. We want to point out what the hymns say about God and about us—even us specifically at Westminster. In this series, we both celebrate “old standard” hymns as well as introduce a new hymnal.

This week we begin a new series looking at the hymns of our faith alongside Scripture.

Winter tends to be an introspective time, and so our worship in January and February has become a time when we focus on “basics”—the core of our tradition.

The hymns in the series are those that this congregation has sung consistently for at least the last decade. We want to point out what the hymns say about God and about us—even us specifically at Westminster. In this series, we both celebrate “old standard” hymns as well as introduce a new hymnal.

Join us this Sunday at 8:30a and 11:00a as we sing, pray, worship, and learn together.
