More Benefit from Mr. Pipes

This past Sunday during corporate worship one of my boys tapped my arm as the next hymn began. He pointed to the bottom of the page where there was written, “Author: William Cowper.” With a knowing look he whispered, “We read about him!”
As we talked about the service during lunch, my two oldest boys mentioned that they now look each time to see who the author is of the hymn is to see if it is one “we know.” This thrills me! It is another level of engagement in our worship and ownership of this grand corpus of hymns. Any book which heightens interest and excitement about our hymns in my children is “must have” for me.

Sorry to post a question here- I couldn't find your email. How did you get three columns on your blog? I use blogger too and can't figure out how to use 3 columns. THANKS!

Sorry for me delay in responding. the short answer is, "I'm not sure." I think the blog format I chose had three columns. Then a friend of mine who is much more savvy on these things has helped me.
Sorry I could not be of more help!
I tried sending this by email but it bounced back. Sorry.
