Music and Hymnody in the Life of the Church
I haven't been a prolific blogger for a while now (mea culpa), but I have still been thinking about and trying to confess the Word of God, and on occasion have had the privilege and opportunity to share some of that thinking with the Church. Recently, I was invited to speak on music and hymnody in American Christianity at the annual Free Conference hosted by Faith Lutheran Church in Plano, Texas. The other speaker was Dr. Christopher Boyd Brown, who presented an excellent and edifying paper on the role of hymnody in the 16th-century Lutheran Reformation.
For those who are are interested, there are audio and video recordings now available from the conference here.
