As we near the introspective season of Lent, we might decide that for Lent (and forever) we will all try to live by the golden rule—that would be challenging—but worth real consideration. We are reminded by St. Paul today that though we are like Adam—earthly—we also bear the image of the heavenly one—Jesus. I guess the question that we need ask is one we have all heard before: “What would Jesus Do?” Just some thoughts pre-Lent. Keep singing!
Music Notes and News
At times some of you may have noticed me scrambling around in the music area before mass begins trying to get sound set and working. St. Aidan’s has been “nursing” this aged sound system for quite a while. We have certainly gotten our money and use out of it—it is as old as the church building (31 years old—1988—same age as my son), and some components came over from the “pre” St. Aidan church! Fr. Kevin and the Stewardship Commission have decided now is the time to replace this system and update with a digital and integrated new sound system—for there is nothing worse than not being able to hear the Word (proclaimed or sung). Installation starts the week of February 25th, and we ask for patience as we adjust and learn how to serve our liturgy in sound. Congratulations! This is a blessing for all of us!
You may have noticed a few new faces among our music ensembles—we are always hoping that those with vocal or instrumental talent may hear the call to service in the Music Ministry, and step forward. I know some of you out there may have considered joining us—please come and speak with me. I am always looking for choir members—most especially basses, altos, and children for the Youth Choir. If you feel called, come and see me.
We ask that you keep us in prayer as we head toward Lent/Holy Week/Easter—please pray for our health and spirits as we work hard to serve you with the sung Word of God. Thanks!
