Lent doesn’t have to be Holy Week… yet. The season of Lent is more than just the build up to Holy Week. The season of Lent has us focusing for 40 days on preparing for Christ’s passion in repentance and reminds us of our identities as baptized children of God. Catechesis through Lenten Hymns can point us to the Word and Sacraments.
During this episode Peter Reske teaches us how three Lenten hymns impact our walk with Christ during this season. Learn the history behind the text and tune and insider information on how the hymnal is organized and compiled. Remember our role in God’s salvation plan and Jesus’ story through Lenten hymns LSB 430, 425, 449-450.
