I was sitting in my church history class this morning when the sound of singing came rolling down the hall at United Theological Seminary. Professor Oconer’s United Methodist History class was singing “Love Divine All Love’s Excelling.” They were loud and spirited singers, like all good Methodists should be.
It reminded me of the year before when I had been in that class. It reminded me of times at Annual Conference or Course of Study school when large groups of United Methodists had sung the great old Wesleyan hymns together.
I just love that sound.
I hope that no matter how we change, we never lose the habit of singing these great, old songs together.
