to celebrate payday, we are venturing out tonight to see the new harry potter film, something i've been looking forward to. and it's rated pg-13, which automatically makes it better than pg. no sour gummy candies this time, though - they always seem like a good idea but end up making me feel sick.

in other news, the new piano is getting some heavy use, especially in the area of advent and christmas hymns from various lutheran sources in the apartment.

What' this: "The piano is getting some heavy use, especially ,,, from various Lutheran sources."

What's going on out there? Is this some kind of subversive, mid-western Minnesota, Lutheran conspiracy cloaked in the garb of Berkley?

Does the "Patron Saint" of MN (GArrison Keilor) know about this?

Are you singing the words to the hymns as they are written or are you putting new words to the music?

Joy to the World! ... Remember the "Good News" was first given to a bunch of lowly, salt-of-the-earth, grubby, hard working, out-doorsy shepherds. It was not first announced in castles to Kings.

That's part of the wonderful contradiction of the "Good News". It was announced to "the least, the last, and the lonely." That means it's available to even you and me.

Didn't know you were going to get "THE WORD" tonight -- did you bothers & sisters? Just say "AMEN" and good night.

I think one of the things your uncle may be trying to say is that we need to get you a good Methodist source for Advent and Christmas hymns. Lutherans may be great musicians, but no one can rival Charles Wesley for hymnody.

I'm not quite sure how he got from that to "the least, the last," etc., but Amen anyway.

Thanks for helping to clarify that for me.

Being the most liberal branch of Lutherans, we love to be inclusive! And that includes Methodist hymnody. In fact we have 13 of Charlie's hymns in the LBW, and 5 more by other Wesleys - John and Sam. We're not all that bad :)
