Leslie's Omnibus

Sunday School

My family attended a very small Methodist Church in Lombard, IL for years. Money was always tight there, and we didn't always have the $$$ to pay for a guest preacher when the regular reverend took his well-needed vacation breaks.

During the summers when the pastor went on hiatus, we'd occasionally have a Sunday service that was pretty much one long hymn-sing where the lay leader would take requests, shout them up to the oganist in the choir loft at the rear of the church, and we'd be off to the races. (Yes, these were the services Diana loved the best.)

I'll start you off with a couple of family favorites. Link your own favorites in the comments, will you?

Darling Daddy:

... and...

The Princess Mom:


Open your hymnals and tell me what you'd be requesting!

I must confess that there are times that nothing beats a rousing round of "Onward, Christian Soldiers".
