    A Touching Place

    The tune is beautiful to this but the words are so thoughtful, so often people forget those who are shunned or who feel excluded by society and it is those people who need someone to reach out to them and help them find God the most. The Hymn is written by John Bell of the Iona...

    I Am His and He Is Mine

    I have hymns that I find myself singing, even though I don't attend church any longer.  They comfort me and their words embrace me with comfort.   Tonight, I am thinking of this one, as I remember a night time service I attended when very young that this was the...
