Emmy Woock (Director of Music Ministries at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Elmhurst, Illinois) joins Sarah, Erin, Bri, and Rachel for the first episode in a new segment—Adventures in Lutheranism—which introduces Ladies and listeners alike to some aspect of Lutheran faith and culture that may have been previously unfamiliar to them.
In this joy-filled conversation, Woock (together with fellow enthusiast Sarah) describes the Holy Saturday Easter Vigil service she helped establish at her church, explains why this uncommon but nonetheless traditional liturgy is so special to her, and offers practical advice for church leaders and musicians interesting in holding their own Easter Vigils.
