Two Advent Hymns

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis’ Director of Music Arts Dr. James F. Marriott plays organ overtures to “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” (LSB 357, above) and “Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates” (LSB 340/341, below). These two great advent hymns frame Christ’s coming as a child in Bethlehem, our deliverer, our Savior, who will indeed come again in glory.

Who Has Ever Even Heard of the Missouri Synod?

Paul Raabe reflects on the label “Lutheran” and how, in some contexts, it does not communicate to most Americans. We need to be able to explain ourselves to outsiders in ways intelligible to them. Maybe a church sign should say: “A Gospel-Baptism-Lord’s Supper-Bible-Creedal-Liturgical Church - Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.” These descriptions are the markers of our church body.
