If you’re into that sort of thing . . .

The events of the last post, needless to say, overshadowed many other events today.

Still, there are those of you who want to know these sorts of things, just as I want to know these sorts of things about your services, so here goes:

    I wonder, do the Bourgeoisie know that we were singing his Uncle Louie’s hymn?

    Yes, Bourgeoisie (or at least this Bourgeois) notices when the Geneva Psalter is used, and sometimes my mind will wander to wonder about some kind of Reformed heritage…as it stands now most of my family wants me to come back to “The Church.”

    Speaking of “The Church,” next year we should sing “One Bread, One Body.” That one always moved me. I love it. Did I put a stickie on it in your Gather Comprehensive?

    I especially loved “Jesu, Jesu, Fill Us with Your Love”. I hope we see a lot more of that insert.

    Yes, I’ve liked that ever since my choir director at Mountain Brook Presbyterian in Birmingham, Dr. Bugg, introduced me to that. Let’s see, that would have been probably 1985.

    St. Andrew’s in Jackson used to sing it on Maundy Thursday during the washing of feet.
