Time After Pentecost — Lectionary 24 (Year C)

In the classic American hymn, "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing," the hymn writer refers to our "wandering hearts." We hear a parable of wandering sheep in this week's gospel text. Join us on Sing For Joy as we explore the themes of worship through scripture and song.
