The congregational order of LSB hymnals and associated available editions has arrived and is now in the pew. The church secretary, the custodian, and I boxed up the old TLHs and replaced them with the new editions. It was better than new phone book day.
I’m pretty stoked about this update. This congregation skipped over LW but voted to acquire and use the LSB. My critique of the LSB still stands, but as I said before, I am really positive about this edition. (And if CPH would see fit to offer a devotional companion with the propers in it for laymen who don’t really want the altar book, that might just be a cool move. It might not be universally desired, of course, but I could see at least some market for it.) We’ll bless and dedicate the new LSBs just before the service on Sunday, and then the congregation will have a chance to use them for the first time.
