    Thanks for the pointers. These are tricky readings to marry hymns up with especially for worshipping with children. I think I’ll add ‘He’s got the whole world in his hands’ to the Galatians section – my tuppence worth!

    • Editor says:

      Lovely idea, Ruth – thanks – I’ve added it into the main list! Incidentally, for a time of stillness in a service, there are a number of recordings of Nina Simone’s beautiful and reflective version of this hymn. Worth checking out.
