Thoughts on Children of God (May the Spirit Come Down)
In 2019, one of the priests I had worked with in the past encouraged me to enter a hymn-writing competition that was being held by the Diocese of Richmond, Virginia to celebrate their bicentennial. The text had to be based on Paul’s letter to the Philippians, 2:1-17. I discussed the choice of the text with Fr. Bonaventure and made a recording in the parish center with old friends from the past as well as new friends from St. Mary’s. Although the hymn I submitted did not win the competition, it did make the final round. I dedicated it to the people of St. Mary of the Hill parish.
