Most years during Lent I post Featured Hymns to go along with themes and stories instead of the scripture passages in the Revised Common Lectionary. This year I am reviewing ministry gifts. I don't pretend to be an "expert" in the area, but have been studying it for several years and have presented a study and survey to several adult Sunday School classes. You are invited to participate, too.
The survey is available online, along with the outline for the class. The first week deals with Gifts of Perception. I hope you will the study at http://www.HymnSite.com/giftsurvey. May we all be good stewards of the gifts we have received from God.
God bless you--
