Five Favorites: Lent albums (too many to list)

-- 1 -- 

Prayerbook Project, no. 2 by Brian Moss 


Brian is a friend I met first through his music.  He is making faithful, steady contributions to the beauty of the Church.  I'm also excited he'll be joining us in Austin on March 30 for an evening of Lenten reflection.

The Kingdom of Heaven Is Like This by Rain for Roots


You might see this album and think Lent? A children's album?  May I encourage you to push those thoughts out of the way and click play?  Also, this album is a beautiful soundtrack for our family as we're making small attempts to memorize the Sermon on the Mount during Lent. Which reminds me of my all-time favorite song crafted for the Beatitudes:  Words to Build a Life On 


-- 3 -- 

Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices by The Welcome Wagon


-- 4 -- 

Depths of Mercy by Red Mountain Church


-- 5 -- 

Not A Word by Holy City Hymns


-- Bonus --

Other good words online this week

  • Brian Moss and An Evening of Prayerbook Reflections at Christ Church of Austin: "Come and join us for a special evening of Lenten reflection with musical artist Brian Moss. Brian is currently writing songs based on each of the Psalms entitled The Prayerbook Project. He will share this with us in the Stott Room at the Christ Church Offices on Sunday, March 30 - doors & coffee at 6pm, concert starts at 6:30pm. The suggested donation for the evening is $10."
  • Alliance churches merge to expand outreach in Johnson City at  (My brother-in-law is pastoring this good work in our hometown) "Churches merging is certainly not new in the Southern Tier or elsewhere, particularly in recent years as the Catholic diocese downsized.But a plan that keeps the Johnson City church’s doors open in a neighborhood with few physical assets is a testament to outreach ministry."
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel a review by Frederica Mathewes-Green at Books & Culture: "The Grand Budapest Hotel is surely the most Wes-Andersony of all the Wes Anderson movies, and if you've never seen a Wes Anderson movie, well, I don't know what to tell you. Try this: of all contemporary filmmakers, Anderson is the one most likely to provoke reviewers to use the words "fey" and "twee." "


A song-filled weekend for us all, dear ones.
