It is the name of a lovely old Welsh hymn tune - we sung it in Norfolk last week, and Neil the Pastor reminded us of the meaning of the word.
I thought about it again this weekend - we had the Grand Opening our our newly extended/refurbished building yesterday. Look at the chapel as it used to be when we arrived last January

Then Samuel set up a stone between Mizpah and Shen, and said "The Lord has helped us all the way - and he named the stone Ebenezer"
