Talking with God through Music

This is a book of stories about 51 different hymns, all related to the theme of “Peace and Comfort.” For each hymn, the melody line and verses are shown, followed by the basic facts of the hymn – who wrote the words, what scripture the text relates to, who composed the music, and the name of the tune. The selection ends with some kind of story. It may be what prompted the author to write the hymn. Or, what impact the hymn has had on individuals or globally. Or what experience I have had with the hymn personally. Some of the hymns are:

  • Let There Be Peace on Earth
  • Peace in the Valley
  • Just a Closer Walk with Thee
  • What a Friend We Have in Jesus
  • Sweet, Sweet Spirit

This book is the first full-length book in the series, “Talking to God through Music.”

Listening for God FRONTLISTENING FOR GOD:
52 Reflections on Everyday Life

A collection of 52 short essays that originally appeared as blog posts on the Whispering Winds Blog. Each reflection is a short story about something I experienced that made me think God was trying to tell me something.

  • What was God saying when the squirrel threw hickory nuts down at my dog Abbey and me as we walked by?
  • Why did we sing “Jesus Loves Me” today in the women’s worship service in the county jail?
  • What is God telling me about keeping to-do lists when I have a day of constant interruptions?
  • Did God have a message for me the day the goose family landed on our pond?

Discover how God talks to us through everyday happenings.

Come Lord Jesus FRONTCOME, LORD JESUS, BE OUR GUEST:
Adventures in Hospitality

Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest.
Let this food to us be blest. Amen.

That’s the second prayer I learned to say as a child. The first one was, “God, Bless our food. Amen.”

By age five, when I learned the second prayer, I was just beginning to learn about hospitality, although I hadn’t learned that word yet. I was inviting Jesus to join us for our meals. Over the years, I’ve learned that asking Jesus to join me for a meal also means inviting anyone who is hungry to join me, not just Jesus.

Hospitality is a major theme throughout the Bible, from beginning to end. For example.

  • Abraham welcomed strangers who turned out to be angels.
  • A woman from the town of Shunem put an upper room addition onto her house so that Elisha, a prophet of God, would have a place to stay whenever he traveled through the area.
  • Mary and Martha routinely invited Jesus into their home.
  • Paul talked about the need to be hospitable in many of his letters to the new churches.

What do these stories and many other Bible verses about hospitality mean for us today? Forty years ago, a stranger invited me into her home, and started to teach me about the kind of hospitality God intended for us. That’s the story I’m sharing in this book.
