Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

December 6, 2020 Speaker: Mark Petersburg and Chris Mendez Series: The Carols of Christmas


In 1739, a year after he had a conversion experience, Charles Wesley wrote a poem of ten four-line stanzas filled with the wonder of the Incarnation. The words of this beloved Christmas carol speak of some of the great doctrines of the faith including reconciliation, the virgin birth, the deity of the Christ-child, and the new birth. When we contemplate the significance of these things, we join “With angelic hosts (and) proclaim, ‘Christ is born in Bethlehem!’”
