JOHN F. WILSON

John’s songs were written during his years as a government legal advisor. They were prompted by a desire to contribute to Christian Science church services. The name ‘Sermons in Song’ is derived from a phrase in Science & Health by Mary Baker Eddy (p.234) "be it song, sermon or Science".
