I can certainly see why a UCC congregation would use the Disciples' hymnal. It strikes more of a balance between new/inclusive and older hymns being printed as they already are rather than changing words, wheras the New Century Hymnal takes an all or nothing approach to inclusive language. The Chalice Hymnal contains some wonderful new hymns as well.   Blessings, Beau Surratt

I just resigned after two years = with a wonderful UCC congregation. They had the "New Century," which except = for the *overly* inclusive language I consider to be one of the most well balanced new hymnals. This congregation solved their problem by keeping = the old "Pilgrim" hymnals in the pews along with NC.   Perhaps people are learning from the Episcopal Church's pioneering = mistakes with "The Hymnal, 1982." Today I learned that in addition to our two (current main) supplements, LEVAS II (gospel and spirituals) and WLP (contemporary songs and ethnic melodies,) we have a new CHILDREN'S = resource.   My rector knows the person who is completing the newest version of Church Hymnal Corporations all-in-one computer CD-ROM resource "The Rite Stuff." This Sunday is Children's Sunday for us and I got to experience the new material and have included some of the songs this Sunday. I think it will prove to be a good resource. Any of you interested Episcopalians can = email me off-list and I will find out when this version will be available for sale.   If you do the desk-top publishing for your church bulletins, The Rite = Stuff includes The BCP, Bible(s,) and all the church music resources in one = CD-ROM and you can create your bulletins so that nobody has to pick up anything else if you choose. It has been out for a while, the one I am excited = about is an update. Be prepared to pay - it is not cheap!   +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Randy Terry Music Minister The Episcopal Church of St. Peter Redwood City, California
