Children have better eyes than ears...

Richard Greenham, who lived in the 14th century, wisely said:

"Experience teaches us that children like or mislike more by countenance, gesture, and behavior than by rule, doctrine, precept or instruction."

This prompts us to pray that what we know will first find its way to our own hearts.

Psalm singing in the Reformation

In the church where John Calvin preached in Geneva, they sang the psalms.   And we still have the tunes they used!  For a real treat enjoy hearing some of those beautiful old tunes.   Perhaps some will be resurrected!
