Love communal singing? Show up at a hymn festival at this year's conference of The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada, which will be held in Columbus OH in July. See their website for more info. These events are poignant and often heart-stopping. I particularly remember one at our conference in Birmingham AL a few years ago when we sang many of the songs and hymns that were used and subsequently came out of the struggles for civil rights. You might even want to interview either Executive Director Deb Loftis or one of the many articulate past-presidents. My formative spiritual times have more often than not had their core in singing together as one voice.
