Hymnal 101

Ep 8 - Church Seasons

June 30, 2020 • Pastor Matt Richard

The Church follows its own liturgical calendar throughout the year. Not only does each season have its own color used in the altar area's decorations and the vestments the pastor wears, but there are different collections of hymns appropriate for the focus of each season (and other occasions!) as well. For more information about the Church Year, check out Episode 2 of Hymnal 101. ABOUT THIS SERIES: The hymnal isn’t just a collection of songs we use for worship services. It’s a book containing a ton of resources for the faithful to use throughout the week, even at home! Pastor Matt Richard not only teaches us about the hymnal but how to make use of it in our daily lives. Host: Rev. Matt Richard is pastor of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Minot, North Dakota.

Ep 7 - Divine Service • June 9, 2020 • Pastor Matt Richard

Most Christians think of worship in terms of the people as the speakers and doers and God watching and listening. But Lutherans call use the term "Divine Service" because it confesses we believe is happening. God is the One speaking and doing and we are the recipients of His gifts in His Word. And then we respond to Him with praise and thanksgiving. ------ ABOUT THIS SERIES: The hymnal isn’t just a collection of songs we use for worship services.
