A few months ago, my husband led an Advent preaching workshop here in the Oklahoma District of the LCMS. Leading up to it, he emailed district musicians to see whether anyone would want to try their hand at writing a hymn for it. As you can guess, I did. 🙂 And he’s encouraged me to share, so I offer my Advent hymn, “The Day is Drawing Near, But When.”
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.
