Songs of Scripture - Faculty Preaching Series - Fall 2016

Songs of Scripture - Faculty Sermons - Fall 2016

On Thursday mornings at Wycliffe it is customary for the faculty to preach in a series that goes through the term.  Sometimes we preach on a given book of Scripture, like Jeremiah;  sometimes it is on some key aspect of the Christian life, like vocation.  This term, we will be preaching  on the biblical “canticles”, that is, on those parts of Scripture we know to be songs: the Song of Moses at the Red Sea in Exodus 15,  the so-called  “Magnificat” or Song of Mary from Luke, and so on.
