“God’s people have been singing for centuries, even millennia. Paul wrote to the Colossians, ‘Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts’ (Colossians 3:16). Singing together is good for us. It binds our hearts to one another, encourages our souls, and lifts our spirits. That’s why congregational singing was one of the things we missed the most when we couldn’t gather for worship because of Covid, and it is why this year’s Denver Seminary Christmas devotional is rooted in reflecting on the hymns we sing together this time of year. I think they will be a great encouragement to all of us this Advent season.”– Dr. Mark Young, President of Denver Seminary
Each year, Denver Seminary creates a devotional for the Advent season to be enjoyed by our community. This year’s devotional, Hark: A Walk Through the Hymns of the Season, features devotionals based on the historic advent hymns, written by Denver Seminary faculty, board members, staff, students, and alumni. These devotions offer stories, lessons, and reflections and will walk you through each day from December 1 to the 25.
We here at ChristianGradSchools.com hope you enjoy this gift from Denver Seminary and that it is a blessing to your Advent season!
