About this Episode

Jen speaks with Award winning composer, Alan Hommerding, whose diverse output as hymn text writer, poet, and Senior Editor at GIA Publications about the disciplines of writing and humility formed throughout a lifetime of ministry work. Alan once referred to himself rather dismissively as a "Catechist with a Rhyming dictionary", but has spent his career striving to bring the work of evangelization and mission to everything he does.
