Our musical friends from Ireland are taking to the road to celebrate Christmas. Keith Getty joins us to talk about ten essential carols. They’ll be singing those in their 9th annual tour of Sing! An Irish Christmas. If you know Keith, you know he’s passionate about hymns. He has a warning about the modern worship movement—so join the conversation on Chris Fabry Live.
Keith Getty is a modern hymn writer. In re-inventing the traditional hymn form, Keith and his wife Kristin have created a distinguished catalogue of songs teaching Christian doctrine and crossing genres by connecting the world of traditional and classical composition with contemporary and globally-accessible melodies. Keith’s most popular hymn, “In Christ Alone,” was co-written with Stuart Townsend and is the #1 most popular hymn sung in the UK for the past nine years.
Chris Fabry is the host of Chris Fabry Live, one hour of spiritual encouragement from his backyard radio fence. The program challenges listeners to think biblically about their spiritual journeys. Chris is also the author of the Christy Award-winning novel Dogwood, June Bug, ECPA Christian Book Award-winner (Fiction) Almost Heaven, Not in the Heart and Borders of the Heart. He and his family live near Tucson, Ariz.
Chris Fabry Live builds up the spiritual immune system of believers. As you walk through the journey of faith called the Christian life, you meet new people, learn new things, laugh, cry and, most importantly, grow in your understanding of God. With his sense of humor, sense of people and no sense of direction, host Chris Fabry treks that journey with you each weekday. Current events and issues, caller interaction, special guests and a few surprises all complement each other on this program. Chris Fabry Live challenges and encourages listeners in their journeys of faith.
