I have been meaning to post my thoughts on the first week in my ‘new’ church, and I will get to that this afternoon. But I wanted to ask a question. I was quite surprised that very few people in my Methodist home church know the song ‘And Can It Be‘ by Charles Wesley. This is something of an ‘unofficial’ Methodist anthem in Britain. I will of course be teaching it to them! I think every Methodist needs to know this song!
That got me thinking: what hymns should every congregation know and sing? Are there ones that reflect who we are so much that every congregation should be able to say, ‘Yes, I know that one’?
