I am being naughty this week. Not massively, but knowingly doing something that will annoy some of the good people at D+1. It is cluster pulpit exchange Sunday (or preacher exchange as someone who is very literal pointed out) and it is my turn to go to the last vestige of "Green Hymnbook is the only true hymnal" in this area. They have a nice little set of Mission Praise which used to be used by the morning congregation but the evening folk hated it with a passion (I think it's that way round anyway). Now they have combined into one service and the order I've been sent says quite clearly BHB. So here's my bit of mischief - sing the three (out of four) hymns that are in the green book from Mission Praise.
I do love my little congregation who, since we moved over to service sheets, sing from any source I come up with and are none the wiser. This means they've sung loads of things they'd otherwise have objected to and enjoyed them. Nowt so queer as folk, as the saying goes.
