What we sing

Just some thoughts on hymns with a nice article to go along with it. I was thinking about how most evangelicals do not have a liturgy that goes back hundreds of years as a tie that binds them to our sacred past. Very few traditions, no liturgy. They have had two great things going for them, preaching and hymns. Both are not what they once were. Many of the old hymns are so rich and so well crafted. They have been sung in Protestant churches for hundreds of years in some cases and now they are being cast aside without a second thought. Keep hymns alive! Also check out this cool slide show about hymns from Christianity Today.
