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.
