I really didn't mean to open a can of worms. It wasn't my intention to disparage anyone's way of worship, actually, in the last few years I've gotten more comfortable with different ways of worship. After I wrote the post about my hymnal I started to think about why I had written it. I realized this: I feel comfortable with "5/15." Its what I grew up with and I get a warm fuzzy when I think about it. It reminds me of my father's ministry and that's a good memory for me.
Jim, in a note, was right, too. We shouldn't put too much stock in something was written my men.
As I reread the posts I realized that what I said sounded awfully harsh, particularly about the "Sunday morning camp fires." Heaven knows, I had more then a few serious spiritual-knocks-about-the-head at camp fires my four summers at Lone Star. I learned about the power of a simple song that has powerful meaning, but sometimes, sometimes that doesn't work for me-- sometimes I need a good old fashioned full boar organ filled hymn.
