Sitting in the darkened sanctuary last night, I marveled at how much Vespers means to me. John Catchings and Jonathan Vest, two master musicians, were playing "How Deep the Father's Love" on cello and keyboard. Dawn Whitelaw had just testified about her spiritual experiences while painting the Stations of the Cross canvases we have been using during the season of Lent. Our huge cross lay on the steps to the stage outlined by the canvases and candles. Talk about ambiance! And the various stations revolved around Mary, the mother of Jesus.
These quiet times each week have grown my faith and my appreciation for the many ways in which God can visit us.
Thanks Scott Owings, Matt and Mary Hearn for your work in guiding these Wednesday nights.
