Since we have a short month doesn’t mean we have little to add for updates this month.
I came across some neat quotes from Luther about youth and the value of singing hymns, etc. Check it out yourself on the Hymns and Songs tab at http://churchmatterssolutions.org/contemporary-hymns/.
2. The LCMS ReVitality program (congregational renewal) is moving right along with the initial releases now available. Specifically, the Self-Assessment tool, the Connected Disciple and the Shepherding the Strays modules are all available at no cost to congregations. More details on http://churchmatterssolutions.org/church-renewal/.
3. New information added on Assimilation on the Visitors Corner Page at this link, http://churchmatterssolutions.org/outreach/visitors-corner/
4. Not one but two new hymns have been added to the Hymns and Songs Tab at http://churchmatterssolutions.org/contemporary-hymns/. The first hymn uses the tune for Lamb of God, #550 in LSB and has a Lenten theme. The second hymn is a variation, but has the music to a public domain hymn, and also has a Lenten theme. Check them out on http://churchmatterssolutions.org/contemporary-hymns/.
