Interesting stuff from CPH and Cyberbretheren

This morning's readings included some things from Paul McCain's blog.  He has a very nice day by day scripture summary of what happened on each day of Holy Week.  Have a look.  There is also a link to a tour through Jerusalem and where Jesus would have been.  I haven't tried it yet.  Maybe tomorrow.

His post today also deals with a campaign "a hymnal in every home". -- O, please, let there be a hymnal in every home.-- I do not understand how people cannot have a hymnal. -- We make such a big deal of our heritage of hymns and then we don't even have a hymnal or know any hymns by heart.-- !!!

While I am at it, let me also recommend another CPH product, which is my latest acquisition from them.  It's a 4 CD set titled:  "Heirs of the Reformation."  Currently on sale for $30.00.  You could get it together with your hymnal or give it to someone together with a hymnal.  There are about 45 hymns with tons of verses and professionally done.  The music is perfect and the singing--you can understand every word.  It is so very nice.  If you are going to get only one set of hymn CD's, get this one.

At night, we take up one hymn at a time, more or less in order on the CD, rather than by season, and get out the hymnal and sing along.  Well, I sing along and my husband meditates along sometimes voicing his deep approval or else complaining about a particular arrangement (he can be a little narrow but several are a little "artistic").

Also interesting to me was the discussion about this video.  The producer of the video also has a blog "Better than sacrifice."
