Hymn of the Month

"Repetition is the mother of all learning"

\"Repetition is the mother of all learning." We learned the ABC's, numerical order, times tables, and even our own names by repetition! We also learn the Word of God by repetition (Psalm 1). We learn it to the point that we can say it by heart. This is the idea behind Zion's Hymn of the Month. Each month, we sing the new hymn at the end of every service for one month. Sometimes it's challenging to sing! But, we, as a congregation, work together to learn the great treasure of our Lutheran Hymnody! More important than the beautiful, timeless music, are the comforting, eternal words! If you cannot sing well, give it your best shot. The purpose of the hymn is to teach. So, at least, read the words and meditate on them.
