I ordered a copy of the UUA hymnal supplement Singing the Journey and it came today. Some of the hymns (songs, choruses? who is the audience?) are familiar because I sang them at General Assembly (which does not auger well) and one is familar because I remember it from The Muppet Show (which I like, but see limited use in worship).
At first I looked at the book and though it much larger — 92 leaves — than I imaged.
But it only has 75 selections, which made it very much smaller than it looks.
Until I have a good sing-though (of at least random portions) I’ll reserve final judgment, but from this point it will take a lot of convincing. Flipping though and la-la-ing a few melodies, I found myself saying “yuck.”
