Below you will find a snapshot of some of the activities and worship opportunities coming up over the next week or so. This week we continue our journey through the Blues of Lent by looking at Mortality.
Here at Trinity, we are exploring Lent as a season of the Blues, of secular music that nonetheless speaks deeply to our souls. These are popular 20th century songs that engage our minds, our hearts, our lives.
This morning’s blues songs are both musical reflections on the brevity of life, and the limited opportunities to connect and to make a difference in the world. Kathleen and Rich McCallum perform “For All We Know.” Written in 1934, the song was later popularized by Nat King Cole, Dinah Washington, and Rosemary Clooney (amongst others). Kathy recalls it as “a second world war song, when people literally faced death every day… I have always been interested in wartime songs, my parents lived in Great Britain during the second world war.”
Bryan Boothe shares with us “Only Here for a Little While,” a 1990 song recorded by country artist Billy Dean. Bryan describes the song as, “about a regular everyday guy looking at what’s really important in life, triggered by a friend’s passing at an early age.”
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.
