Is it time to dust off the hymnal and start singing and passing down the great hymns of the faith to our children and grandchildren? What have we lost if we only sing the lyrics of our day? David and Barbara Leeman have put together Our Hymns, Our Heritage a teaching tool that aids us in passing down the heritage of timeless hymns along with a brief story and devotional that connects us with those saints of the past. Be listening for this conversation with the Leemans who have insight and inspiration from the hymns to close out our week on Ken and Deb in the Morning.
