Learn the stories behind these beloved spirituals.
If the rousing lyrics and rhythm of “Go Tell it on the Mountain” are what stirs your soul, this is the Advent study that will speak to you. Each of the four sessions of Mary Had a Baby corresponds with the four weeks of Advent and features a Christmas Spiritual. You’ll listen to the music, examine related Scripture, and discuss biblical, historical, and contextual themes in a fun and interactive setting—a perfect seasonal study for small groups, choir workshops, or any gathering of those who’d enjoy a little toe tapping while strengthening their faith.
The book includes leader helps. The four spirituals featured in Mary Had a Baby
are “Mary Had a Baby,” “Rise Up Shepherd and Follow,” “Children, Go Where I Send Thee,“ and “Go, Tell It on the Mountain.” An mp3 file of the four songs is available free with purchase of the study.
