Old tunes, new words

Published February 1, 2007

Organizers of a hymn-writing contest have settled on the tunes; now they are looking for new words. The Joint Anglican-Lutheran Commission, which monitors and carries forward the work of the Full Communion agreement between the Anglican and Lutheran churches in Canada, is looking for new texts for Ascension and Nettleton, found in both Anglican and Lutheran hymn books. The winning entry will be sung at worship on June 21, when delegates to the Lutheran and Anglican national conventions in Winnipeg will meet together. The deadline for entries is April 1. For more information about the contest, contact Eileen Scully, Anglican Church of Canada, 80 Hayden St., Toronto, Ont., M4Y 3G2 or at [email protected].
