Hymns of the Week: 18th Sunday of Ordinary Time, year C

Entrance: O God our Help in Ages Past
Offertory: In Bread we bring You, Lord
Communion: Do Not Be Afraid
Recessional: Walk in the Light

(Final hymn chosen especially for my eldest daughter, who loves it. She also thinks the words are "Ahhhh-hhhhh, ginger live".)

I did debate using Faith of our Fathers this week, with respect to everything that's been going on in the world of late, but it's a bit too polemical. Whilst I think it's an amazing hymn, the words can be interpreted as encouraging division and conflict, and that's the last thing we need at the moment. Not being afraid seems to be a pretty good starting point, anyway.
