Generational Hymns

“There’s something about the sort of hymnody that I grew up with that’s very evocative to me. But it struck me when I was with my 87-year-old grandmother. She was very sick; she’d had a stroke. I thought she was about to die; she didn’t. But I was thinking, I can sing hymns to her here at the bedside that she will know and that I will know. And I don’t think that will be the case with my children when I am lying on my deathbed, because the way that we sing the hymnody is all so generationally divided up.” 
– Russell D. Moore
