Hymn & Scripture Challenge

I began a new study this week.  Over at TRIPLE THE SCRAPS  they are starting a Hymn & Scripture challenge for 2012.  Click the link to go look at the challenge.  We will be studying the history behind hymns and the people who wrote them. 
This weeks hymn is Amazing Grace written by John Newton. 
You can read more about Mr. Newton

Also, there is a movie called Amazing Grace  that was released back in 2007 that speaks to the history of the slave trade and the people who fought to abolish it. 

For my HSCRC12 page, I went to a used book store and bought an old hymnal.  I am using the pages as my background.  I will be posting my pages in a tab at the top of my blog, so you can reference them anytime throughout the year.

This is such a cheerful and uplifting project that just sings of the Lord's goodness. Thanks for sharing it and for being an encouragement. I'd also like to tell you about another challenge blog where we use scripture in our art (it's our one and only requirement to play along) and we would SO love to have you join us. We hope you will stop by and share your beautiful art with us. Have a great day and we hope to see you soon!
Blessings to you,

Hi Carol, Thanks so much for participating in Scripture Thursday. Your project is delightful. Hymns and Scripture are two of my favorite things so I'm really enjoying the new hymn challenge. I'm so glad to others joining in. You can link up to 2 projects per week at Scripture Thursday so feel free to add another one of your hymn pages if you'd like. ~ Abby
