I’ve been MIA for awhile. I still have not been able to find much time or energy to write, but I’m grateful that this space and a couple readers are still here. I don’t always have much to say, but I’m glad I can still come back here.
I ran across this blog on Facebook, and the author’s thoughts sum up my feelings so well. I miss hymns and their depth, and it makes me sad that so many churches are moving away from them entirely. I love this guy’s way of ensuring that hymns don’t die in his church.
I hope all is well in your world.

Good to see you, Jamie. I like hymns too. And lots of other stuff.
Very interesting article and follow-up comments. Thank you for pointing us there. btw, My position is that the music should honor God above all, but my personal preference is for the old hymns. But then, I am old.
I never want to see hymns go away. I appreciate a lot of different music but love the tradition that old hymns inspire.
I saw that post and commented on it. The upshot is that, despite my own misgivings about some contemporary worship music, it doesn’t really matter all that much. If God uses these songs for His purposes & glory, my opinion means nothing.
