New Hymn 'Come All Disciples' Well Received By Churches

Come All DisciplesThere has been a tremendous response to the release of the new hymn "Come All Disciples." Written by Disciples of Christ Historical Society President Glenn Thomas Carson and Julia Callaway, director of music ministries at Vine Street Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Nashville, Tenn., the hymn celebrates the spirit of unity among Disciples. Its release coincides with the bicentennial anniversary of Thomas Campbell’s "Declaration and Address."

A printed copy of the hymn was sent to music directors throughout the denomination, "and we have heard from scores of them about performing the hymn in their churches," said Carson. The hymn is published by Polar Star Press, where anyone can go to download a free copy of it at www.polarstarpress.com
