Since it’s Saturday, I thought it would be good to take a break from my usual format of talking about classes and talk about something that’s been interesting me lately: hymnals.
For those of you who don’t know me…..I hate Singing the Living Tradition. Absolutely hate it. So I’ve been looking at hymnals for the past few years hoping that I would find one that I really like.
I have a copy of the UCC hymnal. It’s ok, but nothing spectacular. I really like the Chalice Hymnal (from the Disciples), and wish I had a copy here with me.
But I have to tell you, I have fallen in love (or very serious like) with Worship In Song, the hymnal from the Friends General Conference. Maybe it’s because I’m spending time with Quakers, but I find the simplicity of this hymnal to be striking. It would do us UUs a world of good to have a hymnal like this one.
So I’m wondering…….are there any hymnals out there that you enjoy that you think I should take a look at?
