2024 Lenten Meditations

During Lent, we pray, “Create and make in us new and contrite hearts.” Episcopal Relief & Development’s 2024 Lenten Meditations, written by Miguel Escobar, focus on embracing this new heart, this new life in Christ, and looking deep within ourselves and acting in ways that seek and serve Christ in others. Visit episcopalrelief.org/Lent to subscribe to daily emails, read the meditations online, or download a PDF.

Upcoming Events

The Book of Jonah

Join Fr. Paul in the Chapel for light refreshments and a discussion of the book of Jonah on Thursday, February 29, March 7, and March 14 at 6:00 pm. Jonah explores some fascinating questions: What does it mean to say no (or yes) to God’s call? What is the nature of prophecy? What is God’s sense of justice and fairness? And, it is filled with humor and magical realism that seem to try and undermine its seriousness. Fr. Paul will catch you up if you need to miss a session. Please RSVP to Fr. Paul so we can plan accordingly (but come anyway if you forget to RSVP).

First Meeting: Oliver!

There will be a potluck brunch on Saturday, March 9, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm in the Rainbow Room as we have our first meeting for the spring musical Oliver! A second reading is planned for Saturday, March 16, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm in the Rainbow Room. Please email Norm at nrichert@comcast.net if you would like to be involved and are not already on the theater email list. There are ways to contribute to the production, both on and off stage, that could be right up your alley!

Music Notes

Hymn 318: Here, O my Lord

This hymn is a perfect match of heart-felt words and heart-stirring music. The text expresses our deep need for and utter dependence on God, as well as the deep assurance that God meets our need and holds us close. Horatius Bonar, the text’s author, was a Scottish Free Church minister in the 19th century, known for his profound faith and scholarship, and great personal warmth. The music was composed in 1970 at Grace Church, Nyack NY, by Warren Swenson, then organist and choirmaster. Its lyric beauty voices our yearning for God. - Donna Wessel Walker

O Lord In Thee Is All My Trust (Tallis)

Thomas Tallis (c.1505-1585) crystallized in his English church music what the Protestant Reformers wanted for the liturgy: use of the vernacular rather than Latin, intelligibility and clarity in word setting, and simple rather than ornate music. This morning’s anthem, a paradigm of uncomplicated tonal thought, is little more than harmonization of a characterful tune which first appeared in Sternhold and Hopkins’ Psalter in 1562. - Dennis Powers
