Your comments in your article 'Ignorance and the Church of England' are to the point. This morning we endured two hymns from 'Junior Praise', music and text both of the utmost banality even by the standards of that miserable book. The comment had been made that these would connect better with people who do not attend church regularly. The contrast with 'Love Divine All Loves Excelling' to the tune 'Blaenwern' later in the service was unbelievable. At least our services try to maintain some degree of balance, but I wonder whether as a body we are peering into the abyss.
