‘12 Days of Christmas’: Featuring the writings of Kenneth I. Morse
(December 13, 2012)
This is the first in an occasional Newsline series in the run-up to the 2013 Annual Conference. The 100th anniversary of the birth of poet and hymnwriter Kenneth I. Morse will be remembered when the Conference meets on a theme based on his hymn, “Move in Our Midst.” From now until Annual Conference, Newsline will take a look back at Morse’s work on the editorial staff of “Messenger” magazine during the turbulent 1960s and ’70s, when he made creative contributions to the church that still speak today. Morse wrote the lyrics for this alternative Christmas carol, and a new tune with harmonization by Wilbur Brumbaugh.
