Amazing Grace

I didn’t want to let today go by without acknowledging that it was 250 years ago today that John Newton first presented his hymn ‘Amazing Grace’ to his congregation in Olney, to accompany his sermon for that day on 1 Chronicles 17:16–17.

Interestingly, the BBC has picked up on the anniversary here, as has The Observer here.

Bruce Hindmarsh gives a good rundown here.
