African American Spirituals

Thornton with material from the first edition by Cheryl Kirk-Duggan. Clicking this link will take you to the Amazon page for this book. Mary Had a Baby has four sessions, one for each week of Advent. Each lesson includes Scripture, song lyrics, devotional and contextual information, and discussion questions to stimulate deepening faith and a sense of community. 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.” Please contact Rebecca Chase to reserve a book ($10).
