Trinity Lent 2 Week

Hello Trinity Friends!

This Sunday March 16th we continue our journey through the “blues” of Lent with an emphasis on MEMORY.

“You can’t separate modern jazz from rock or from rhythm and blues – you can’t separate it. Because that’s where it all started, and that’s where it all come from – that’s where I learned to keep rhythm–in church.” ~Art Blakey

During Lent, Christians traditionally give up our victorious “Hallelujah” songs in favour of more sombre tunes. As an experiment of the Spirit, we are exploring Lent as a season of the Blues, of secular music that speaks to our souls.

This morning’s “blues” music includes three intriguing requests from Trinity music lovers. Ione sings “Mood Indigo,” a blues classic sung by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, and Nina Simone. Another Trinity member asked for “Auld Lang Syne” as a song that recalls the beauty and the pains of the past—a song that inevitably conjures tears for her.  A third request, from John Sheridan, was for Van Morrison’s classic, “Have I Told You Lately (That I Love You).” 


LENTEN COMPANION STUDY: a Lenten Bible study will be held Tuesdays in Lent at 1pm in the Fireside Room. Our study will involve spiritual practices, exploration of the readings and will complement Sunday worship. For more information, please contact Shalome.
