Hymns and Beer

I’ve never been to an event like this (for most of my church traditions, these two things are a 1000 miles apart), but nevertheless the content of the message – and the response to the tragedy in Denver last week – seem fitting. These Lutherans gathered and sang hymns, and for good reason. Here’s just one paragraph:

It’s important to note that to sing praises to God amongst destruction and violence is not the same thing as saying Hey God we think you’re awesome for allowing these horrible things to happen.  To sing praise to God amidst destruction and violence is to simply put evil in it’s place.  It’s to draw a line and say here and no further.  For the devil surely hates the sound of alleluia.

Via the Anchoress.
