I have received an email today from one of my readers who are not on facebook asking if I could tell you more about the 30 day hymn challenge I mentioned a couple of days ago.
Essentially it is something I set up having done the 30 day song challenge on facebook. There are a list of things to choose hymns for and I have attached the list below if any of you want to have a go at it. One of the beauties of facebook is that I am able to post video versions of the hymns that I choose so in a sense it can be a type of witness as well.
This is the list of hymns.
Day 1 Favourite Easter hymn
day 2 Favourite hymn of all
Day 3 Least favourite hymn
Day 4 Your choice of hymn for a wedding
Day 5 Your choice of hymn for funeral
Day 6 your choice of hymn for a Baptism
