In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer talks with Director of Music Arts Dr. James F. Marriott, who also serves as the Kreft Chair for Music Arts, about the importance of devotions and how to make hymns a part of a personal devotional practice. When selecting hymns “context matters,” Marriott says. “And then of course, the text. You would want [them] to be theologically grounded. While no hymn or song can say everything, you do want [them] to be contributing as much to faith formation as [they] can.” In the audio version of the program, hear a sampling of hymns that can be used as part of a devotional or Bible study.
