Discussion forums for Christian music: message boards, chat rooms, IRC#, and e-mail groups.
Categories devoted to the music of a specific Christian denomination.
Hymns are primarily songs sung by congregations in worship. Unlike "anthems", the music is short--2 to 12 lines or so, with 4 to 8 lines being most common--and the text is divided into stanzas, with the music repeated for each stanza.
There is some content overlap with the "Gospel Music" category, which is more oriented toward "concert to audience" performance.
"Chant," a very distinct musical style, is a separate category.
"Carols"--a similar style with overlapping content, but more social than congregational in use--may be found either here or in the related "Carols" category.
"Anthems" don't really have a home yet.
Sites may contain hymn texts (lyrics), music written or used for hymns (midi files; or scores in graphic or other format) historical information about the origin or use of this music (hymnology); advertisements for hymnals, recordings, or indexes; indexes/links to printed or internet resources.
Site descriptions begin with bracketed keywords including type of content (midi, scores, lyrics, links, indexes, hymnology); Hymnal names; styles (shape notes); denomination or nation (Baptist, Wesleyan, Lutheran, Canada, England, etc.) [feedback on the keywords--value or implementation--is welcome!]
Please submit sites of people known as hymn writers or composers. If the person is mainly known for tunes rather than texts, s/he may be already listed under Arts: Music: Composition: Composers

A Christian music weblog (blog) is run by an individual (or a small group of individuals) and covers topical issues in and around Christian music. Weblogs are updated regularly and disseminate both fact and opinion online. A Christian music weblog is not constrained to a particular musical style or focus but offers simply a writer's opinions on musical activities in a timely fashion.
The main focus of the blog should be about Christian music. If it isn''t, you should submit it to Society/People/Personal_Homepages/Weblogs/.
If the blog covers a single band or artist, it probably belongs in that band or artist''s category.
