Oh the hymnal doesn’t exist. It would be written from scratch but reflecting science topics. Totally new religion.

Anyway, as far as current religious up-to-date hymnals, there was a case back in the 80s (when I was a kid at the methodist church) where some of the church ladies, who considered themselves progressive, decided to update the hymnals with inclusive language, so they went and rubber cemented more politically correct lyrics in all of them.

Anyway, that lasted about a year ’cause it was awkwardly worded.

But another 5 yrs later, that denomination wholesale updated all the hymnals for more inclusive lyrics and such but more professionally written.

So, in the end, they _were_ more progressive. And forward. And a pain in the ass. But it was an easy church to be a kid in. No hell or judgement stuff. Just “be good, do good” pretty much.
