  5. May I have permission to print “I go to sing” in my church bulletin? It exactly fits a series about church singing I have been writing.

  6. I read your comments in “These Days” tonight. Amongst the best I’ve read in 30 + years. Why weren’t you listed in the “About the authors” at the front of the magazine? I will look for more of your writings.


  7. A poem attributed to you popped up on my FB. It may have the title MUSIC! and starts “I might be exhausted ….”. It really spoke to my heart, especially in this time of zoom-church. I would love to share it in our church newsletter. Please contact me. Thank you.
