My heart became hot within me. As I mused, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: "O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am!"

Synod, part 2


A modern psalter suggested
An appendix of old tunes requested;
At such a new shape,
Synod went ape;
Revision committee arrested.

(This interpretation of events is slightly out of line, since the revision committee hasn't finished reporting.)

Tell me you get to sit on the committee to study FV stuff.

Well, I wanted to say you may have missed your calling, but I thought I might get called in for it if I did. ; )

You're a funny man, J.O. The limmericks are a hit. Totally t-shirt worthy. :)

Ooo! Ooo! My turn :)

My hubby to Synod has gone,
Where reports of finances cause yawns.
Some limericks he'll write.
In his free time? At night?
No! While the reports linger on!

Keep up the good work!

I was pretty impressed with the quality of that Chapter 1. All of the questionable (in my mind) phrasing got ousted and replaced with much better terminology.

On a side note, I think that the "classic" psalter tunes should NOT be used with updated language. If you want to put Crimond in the psalter, it better be the original Psalm 23, or some other psalm altogether. If it's in an appendix, fine, but don't try to make a new classic - too postmodern.
