Lamentations 3:25: “The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him.”
For many years, I have appreciated Lent as an especially helpful time for introspection. However, I do not recall “giving up” much during those seasons.
Then, along came Lent 2020 after we were aware of COVID-19. Although involuntarily, I gave up the regular companionship of most of Trinity’s musicians (for varied and legitimate reasons).
When those of us who have been able to remain picked ourselves up and dusted ourselves off, we set forth on a reinvigorated mission to continue Trinity’s music ministry as best we could. It’s been a challenge, but we stand by our efforts. This would not have been possible without the sustaining comments from friends at Trinity and beyond.
Surely, we all look forward to a return to “normalcy.” Meanwhile, the musicians of Trinity will continue to provide the best contributions to musical worship of which we are capable.
Prayer: Direct us. O Lord, in all of our doings with thy most gracious favor, and further us with thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy Name, and finally, by thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
