Why We Ring Bells at Christmas

The Chinese called bells “singing stones,” and Egyptians, Jews and Greeks rang them for their feasts and ceremonies.  For Christians, bells became heralds calling believers to worship.  In the Middle Ages, bells were sources of inspiration announcing Jesus’ redemption of the world.  Upon hearing the chimes, believers were to respond with proper reverence.

This month's theme: Hope

Speaker: Rev. Jean Rowe
