Longings

Sometimes I wish things would never have changed.  I miss being Lutheran the most during Holy Week.  From the loud jubilation on Palm Sunday all the way through trying to be wide awake at Sunrise Service.  Hint: the joy and the music help!

Most especially I miss Dr Sjoerdsma singing Were You There on Good Friday, with the lights dimmed.  I don’t remember if they were actually dimmed when he sang, but the setting surely fits.

And then at the end…  the altar bare…  pitch black…  Pr Pederson slamming the bible on the altar.  The stone sealing the tomb.  It is finished.
