Teaching the Catechism to Sing- March 19

Erickson, RickJoin us Sunday, March 19 at 9:45 a.m. as Cantor Rick Erickson will lead Sunday Forum in an appreciation of Martin Luther’s hymns on some of the chief pieces of the Small Catechism. The sudden bursting forth of the Lutheran chorale is one of the most thrilling chapters in the history of the Reformation. It began in December of 1523; by late in the summer of the following year, Luther had written twenty-four of the thirty-six hymns that would come from his pen. Martin Luther understood the unique way in which music helped people memorize things. Thus he used it to teach the tenets of our Christian faith.
