An old song in new form



I have to say that Todd Agnew's re-working of Amazing Grace has been a blessing to me personally. It's not for congregational singing, but his arrangement brings out the essence of Newton's great hymn and I have listened to it dozens of times during my personal times of worship in recent weeks.

Who said I'm not "contemporary"?

I have often thought about those perplexingly soothing, yet almost haunting words, “When we’ve been there 10,000 years ….. we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise, than when we first begun.” It’s difficult to apprehend such limitless love? “And that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God!” Ephesians 3:17-19

Don't feel bad, Tony. "Contemporary" is overrated. As someone once said, progress is a comparative of which we have not settled the superlative. Glad to hear you're enjoying the hunt.

You obviously lack a great deal of sensibility and taste.

Oops, that last one was me. Forgot to change from my wife's account. :-)
