"Hymns that Time Forgot" presented by Greg Scheer
We are often led to believe that new congregational songs are all chaff and old hymns were all wheat. This hymn sing will cure our selective memory! Dipping into hymnals of days gone by, we find anthems of temperance, tunes to learn to tell time, ballads of death, songs of new technology (the phone), and hymns that are...lost in translation. Greg Scheer will lead us through hymns that time forgot.
Greg Scheer is Minister of Worship at Church of the Servant in Grand Rapids and Music Associate at the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship. His writings include The Art of Worship: A Musician’s Guide to Leading Modern Worship (Baker Books, 2006) and contributions to The Hymn, Call to Worship, Worship Leader, and the forthcoming New Songs of Celebration Render (GIA, ed C. Michael Hawn).
