The Music of Advent

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer talks Advent music with Director of Music Arts Dr. James F. Marriott, who also serves as the Kreft Chair for Music Arts. The two men discuss how hymns can enrich a person’s spiritual life and how we know who Jesus is and how Christians can live as His disciples in the world. “The theology of hymns is so rich,” Marriott says. “The poetry, it sticks with you.”

The audio version of the program also includes a Preachers Studio sermon discussion between Professor of Practical Theology Dr. David Schmitt and Dr. Roosevelt Gray, director of LCMS Black Ministry. You can download the episode in video (mp4) or audio (mp3) format at the Word and Work Scholar page: https://scholar.csl.edu/wordandwork/86/.

Word and Work: An Intersection is a video and audio program providing a behind-the-scenes look at ministry where everyday life and God’s Word meet. It is broadcast on KFUO Radio every Thursday at 2:00 pm CT.
