I’m speechless. I’ve just had an extraordinary experience with an amazing hymn. This video pretty much says it all. This past week, I had the great honor to participate in the world-wide Annual Meeting of the Christian Science church. And this year, we ALL had the distinct opportunity to feel an incredible sense of global unity through music. Check it out here on youtube!

The Mother Church, Boston
I just got back from a huge weekend at The Mother Church (that’s the Christian Science world headquarters where I sing each week) and what an amazing time. People came from all over the world to participate in special services and activities.
I sang 4 services on Sunday and MC’ed a Hymn Sing that introduced brand new hymns soon to come out in a supplemental Hymnal. People were overjoyed to sing new music. Hey, they were clapping and dancing in the aisles!!
The weekend culminated in the 2008 Annual Meeting on Monday, June 2nd. It was a very inspiring, uplifting meeting. Many folks have been writing in and asking about the closing song — the benediction for the meeting that I was honored to sing. It is a new song by Peter Link called “Finding The Christ In Me.”
