Manage episode 308128176 series 2779605
Advent marks the beginning of a new church year and season with a focus of reflecting on how the Israelites waited for their Savior mirrors how we wait for His return. During the season of Advent, there are many hymns that Lutherans love. The stories behind the hymns are just as compelling as the reasons people love them. This episode doesn’t touch on favorites such as O Come, O Come Emmanuel or Savior of the Nations Come (listeners can look forward to two separate episodes solely focusing on these two important Advent hymns), but other important advent hymns.
During this episode Peter Reske tells us the history behind Advent hymns and the themes that connect them all together. Experience the wonder, joy, waiting, and awe of Advent hymns LSB 334, 335, 339, 343, 344, 345, 346, 347, 350,
