Have you followed the Hymn for the Day initiative developed all through July by the Hymn Society of Great Britain & Ireland? Members are reflecting upon a different hymn each day. Some reflections are presented by video or audio, some of the hymns are sung, and always the complete text of both hymn and reflection are made available.
Listen to Timothy Dudley Smith on When I survey the wondrous cross (StF 287) (“I knew the story of the Cross, it hurt my feelings rather”) or engage with Marjorie Dobson, writing through her current pain and anxiety about her own hymn, When our caring love wears thin (StF 622). Or re-discover an old favourite, The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended (StF 147), unpacked by John Crothers (“This was heady stuff – the nearest thing to being ‘caught up to heaven’!”).
A new hymn is being added each day of July. All of them will remain available on the Hymn Society’s website throughout the whole of August after which, due to copyright considerations for some, they will be taken down.

"TAKE TIME MEDITATIONS" is a resource and space for quiet reflection on gospel stories and can be found by clicking HERE.
There are eight new posters (A2 size) of some of the wonderful works in the Methodist Modern Art Collection (Click on this title for ordering information), with artistic representations inspired by Epiphany, Christ’s ministry and Passion, and Holy Communion. Ideal as a focus for personal reflection and to stimulate conversation about what Christ and faith mean to us. Right from the outset, the purpose of the Collection was to encourage us all in ‘seeing the spiritual’. So, you can now purchase your very own piece of dynamic artwork.
