The heart of the Christian community is our Triune Lord: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Geography, history, and numbers are not the heart, but probably I will type mostly on these topics. As the internet already provides many encouraging spiritual guides and discouraging contentious forums, I intend to offer neither.

Hymn: I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light

Yesterday, 8.7.2016, our music director chose as recessional an inspirational hymn that I had never heard before, "I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light," music and words written about 1966 by Kathleen Thomerson.  It is in the Oregon Catholic Press hymnal we use at St. William's.  The melody is soft, easy, and the words "quietly" meditative.  As I suspected, the hymn has a Methodist background.
