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’!

I learned about something delightful that I get to share about. 🙂 It falls more under Lutheran resource than Lutheran authors, though maybe I can argue that composing is writing, too! For your pleasure: Hymns That I Love: Solo Piano arrangements of Confessional Hymns, composed and arranged by Kurt Weber.
Ladies and gentlemen, please wish me well for the week ahead! Like I said yesterday, I plan to take most of next week off from blogging to catch up on other things. Having said that, tune in Monday because I’m reviewing a most excellent book, Shadow among Sheaves, for its debut! Beautiful writing, captivating story. Anyway, for your reading pleasure today, I get to share with you a hymn text sent in to me as a guest post by Lutheran author Mary Antholz. It is a disaster hymn text applicable to the terribly flooding we remain so mindful of.
Merry Christmas and blessed Saint Stephen!
I do not know why some links end up pretty and some remain the same. Whatever. I still recommend this link. 🙂
Woo hoo! Another free Lutheran resource to tell you about! Rev. Bryan Wolfmueller, author, podcaster, radio personality extraordinaire, etc., has produced a free mini-hymnal that you can download, print off, use while visiting someone, and leave as a lingering consolation from God’s Word.
I had a string of good writing days. Sadly, that stopped. Oh well, here’s another neat Lenten resource. It’s nothing to give up as a discipline. Rather, it’s something to add. I think it’s an excellent idea, especially for writers and word people like us. So, with little more prelude . . .
In the fall of last year, (LCMS) Rev. Robin D. Fish released a great book: Useful Hymns: For Worship, Prayer, and Instruction in the Lutheran Church School and Home. I blogged about it back then and now I happily offer my Useful Hymns review.
