Charles Wesley was not the only United Methodist who knew his way around writing a hymn. Two pastors in the New England Conference also write hymns, and their work can be found on the Discipleship Ministries website.
Rev. Stephen Garnaas-Holmes, pastor at St. Matthew's UMC in Massachusetts, and retired pastor Rev. F. Richard (Dick) Garland both have composers pages on the site.
Rev. Garland has some 80 hymns on his page – including three new ones: "Come with Thanksgiving" for Thanksgiving, "A New
Advent of Joy" for the Second Sunday in Advent (Year C) and "The Lord Is Near" for the Third Sunday in Advent (Year C).
