On Sunday, February 9,  2020, Evan Kreider led a meditation on the importance of hymns in our faith, noting that he’s never been moved to tears by a sermon or the reading of Scripture, but there have been times when he couldn’t make it through a hymn due to being overcome by emotion. Various members of the congregation shared a favorite hymn and something significant about it or why it was a favorite. We contemplated each hymn text in silence and then sang the hymn. Tena Neufeld chose “I owe the Lord a morning song”; Hilda Driedger chose “Holy God, We Praise Thy Name”; Walter Quiring wanted us to do not a hymn, but John Cage’s 4’33” which involved more silent listening to what was going on around us and inside us; Annie Funk chose “Praise the Lord, Sing Hallelujah”; Sven Eriksson selected “O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus.” At the end, Curtis Funk performed a piano improvisation on the last hymn.
