Our January Hymn of the Month is Hymn 31, Ancient Words. This new hymn was written in 2001 by Lynn DeShazo, and was first included in a hymnal when our own Celebrating Grace hymnal was published in 2010. The text reminds us of the rich heritage of the scriptures, and is set to a stirring and inspiring melody with modern harmonies.  We are blessed with a hymnody that reflects the diversity of our congregation, through which we may “tell the old, old story” in fresh and inspiring music.
