The Reverend Nancy Clark Ryan was one of James' classmates at New Brunswick Theological Seminary, where we met.  When I was in seminary I spent my senior year at her church in Keyport  as her student minister and choir director.  After she had accepted a call at the Reformed Church of Fort Plain, New York, the congregation there celebrated their two hundred and fiftieth anniversary for which they requested we create a hymn based on their theme scripture.  As is our custom, James composed the text to which I fit a tune.  The premiere of the tune was an anthem setting sung by the choir of the church, conducted by their organist/choir director Eunice Bollen with James and me in the ensemble.
