That Time of Year

It’s that time of year again for worship musicians everywhere.

Lent is drawing to a close. Our 40 days of inward contemplation are about to turn to outward celebration. We’re ready to enter Jerusalem with fanfare and triumph. But not the political triumph of leader on a war horse. The triumph we prepare for is humble and rides on a mule. We’re ready to enter the last week that gives way to the first week.

This is game time for the worship musician. We put lots of hours and creative energy into thinking, designing, preparing, rehearsing, and executing what we hope will be meaningful, worshipful events.

Thus it is quiet here. May our strivings and movements find stillness and anticipation from the tomb.
