As early as people took poetry and set it to music, there have been hymns and songs: as the Egyptian Great Hymn to the Aten, composed by Pharaoh Akhenaten; and the Hurrian Hynm to Nikkal; the Vedas, a collection of hymns in the tradition of Hinduism and the Psalms, a collection of songs from Judaism.
This Sunday, August 12 we will have a conversation about hymns, songs and YOUR favorite hymns, old and new. Come prepared to think, to explore and learn of our faith through HYMNODY. The FORUM will take place in the Quire, the section of the church building that is sandwiched between the nave and the sanctuary, what many call the Choir loft or the Chancel. TIME: 9:00 – 9:40 a.m.
