“When In Our Music God Is Glorified” 

We are now in the season of Lent. The Lenten season has always fascinated me; you must admit, it is sort of strange. We come to church, have ashes put on our forehead, and are asked to keep a Holy Lent. Then, we spend the next 40 days (not including Sundays) in sort of a mournful state... or at least most of us do! 

Lent is a season of self-reflection, prayer, and preparation; we prepare ourselves for Easter. It is difficult to walk through the Easter experience without first walking the 40 days through the wilderness; without first walking through the streets of Jerusalem on Palm Sunday; without first sitting at the table in the upper room with Jesus and the disciples; without first standing at the cross and weeping with Mary and the disciples. 

May you find this season of Lent a season of renewal. Grace and Peace, Dakota
