Bryan College To Host Red Back Hymnal Sing Event Sunday

Thursday, April 6, 2017

Bryan College will host a Red Back Hymnal sing-along event Sunday at 6 p.m. The free event will be held on Bryan’s campus in Rudd Auditorium and be open to local churches and the community.

“We are excited to host this event because it provides an opportunity for our community to come together in giving praise to our God,” said Dr. Stephen Livesay, president of Bryan College.  “Voices united singing timeless hymns ladened with theological truth will provide an unforgettable and inspirational evening.”

All songs sung during the evening appear in the Red Back Hymnal, a collection of hymns used by church choirs and congregations for more than 60 years. The music will be led by Cleveland musician Jack Clark and will feature a number of local musicians.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own copies of the Red Back Hymnal to use during the evening. For guests that do not own a copy, a limited number of hymnals will be available to use.

For more information about the event, contact Margie Legg at leggma@bryan.edu. To learn more about the Red Back Hymnal, please visit here.

Roy Exum: Dear Faux Pelini

It has been my experience that of all the tribes and herds of different people on earth, sports writers are among the funniest people of all. Oh, there isn’t anything real sexy about Villanova beating Georgetown or a baseball player hitting for the cycle. Now, if a player hits a single, double, triple and homer in that order, that’s “a natural cycle,” and that is kind of fun to ... (click for more)
