Children’s Christmas program, Calvary Lutheran Church, Ulen, MN. Anno Domini 2016.
This program was compiled by Rev. Jeff Hendrix and is based on Luther’s Christmas program for his children, his hymn “From Heaven Above to Earth I Come.” It uses hymns from Luther or from Luther’s time, as well as meditations from Luther himself, all to show the continuity of our faith. 2017, the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Lutheran Reformation, affords a unique opportunity to reflect on what a 16th century Christmas program may have looked like, and how the faith confessed is still the same.
(Please excuse the rough start of the audio. I forgot to hit record until after the Exhortation, so the recording starts with the first narration)
