    Hi Sister Sally, I have been working for over three months to learn your beautiful arrangement of How Gentle God’s Command. I M not a good organist, but I try hard! I so appreciate you and your talent. A gift from God! I play a 3 manual Allen organ. No where as beautiful or prestigious as the wonderful organ that you play. I thank you for gift to us all. I struggle with my left hand in the runs but will continue to work it out. I was a good friend of the head organist, (John Obetz), at the old Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ. John has passed on to his Reward in heaven. I am trying to find an audible version of this hymn that you played. It would help me complete my mastery of this wonderful piece. Thank you for all you do for the Lord. Your brother in Christ! Rick Edie
