Volunteers put FUMC labels in our new “The Faith We Sing” song books and also put them into the hymnal racks in the Sanctuary so we are ready to sing from them. No more music “inserts”.
The books were paid for with money from undesignated memorial gifts. So share your book with your neighbor and sing joyfully! In fact, as John Wesley put it many years ago, “Sing lustily and with a good courage.” He also said to, “Sing modestly. Do not bawl, so as to be heard above others.” And, “Above all sing spiritually. Have an eye to God in every word you sing.” It would seem that our forefather had definite thoughts about our music making!
