With a Song in Our Hearts is the title of a new hymn book which was launched here at Wesley Church recently. Methodist ministers Norman Brookes and Norman Goeham have been finding God in the world around them and penning verses in response to current events, such as the Christchurch earthquakes and climate change; they also offer new insights as we move through the church year, celebrating festivals such as Christmas and Easter: While some new tunes have been composed, most of their words can be sung to familiar hymns.
