Some of my readers know already that I grew up in Germany, in a traditional Christian home. Meaning, that my parents went to church whenever there was a (baby) baptism, confirmation (protestant), wedding, or a funeral. Every night, until I was about ten years old, they prayed a children’s prayer with me.
During my childhood years my brother, a youth leader in the church, took me to the local Lutheran church for Sunday School. Later on in life we went to the family worship service. And it was in a Lutheran church that I’ve got to hear and sing and love some more or less famous hymns like this one:
(It’s amazing, how listening to this version just transferred me back to my childhood. It’s almost exactly as it will sound in a traditional Lutheran church in Germany ;))
It wasn’t until many years later that I’ve got saved — while living in the States. And it was there, that I heard and sang and loved this and other hymns all over again! Here is a beautiful version I found on Youtube by Don Moen:
This is sort of a follow-up of another post I did this year The Principle Of Repetition. My point being: the more we are exposed to something the more it becomes familiar to us — no difference if it is a good thing or a bad thing. So, choose wisely what you are watching and what you are listening to throughout the day and week.
