An Early Christmas Present

What a blessing…sort of like an early Christmas present…

I just heard from St. Nicholas Anglican Church in Seaford South Australia, that they will be singing my hymn, “If You Love Me, Keep My Commandments” in their worship on May 25, 2014.

Every now and then, a congregation (usually in another country) writes to let me know that they are singing one of these hymns.

Coincidentally, writing these hymns began with the need for a hymn on that day we also thank our Moms.

I fondly remember sitting in study carrels in the Duke Div School library, writing a hymn each week. It’s nice to know that what one did a decade ago is still being used. Maybe I should write another year of hymns, using my new-found wealth of music in the Lutheran hymnody.
