First Sunday in Lent (Year B)

The season of Lent in the Christian church is something like a dark rainstorm brewing over a thirsty land. It sends people scurrying for cover while at the same time they welcome it as life-giving. Music can be like such a storm, and you will hear that for yourself on the next Sing For Joy. Join us, as the season of Lent begins.
