This weekend I was contacted about my hymn, “Come, Gathered Again.” If you recall, I’m offering it freely to congregations as we gather again and recover from some of this craziness. Since I’d shared it as a PDF previously, it was requested I share it in Word, too. That way it would be easier to copy & paste into a bulletin. (Whoops! I should have thought of that!)
We don’t have much time to dilly dally on this one, but there is another hymn competition for those of you interested in poetry and hymnody. 🙂 This one is by the Hymn Society. An announcement for it is online here.
This weekend my husband told me about a Lutheran hymn contest! I’m quite excited. The short of it is that Concordia Theological Seminary is having a hymn competition in honor of its upcoming 175th anniversary. (Yay for my Alma Mater!)
Ladies and gentlemen, I have doubly good news to tell you! First, there will be a symposium for hymn writers and translators in cooperation with The Good Shepherd Institute. Second, GSI has slightly altered their dates so that it isn’t over All Saints’!
