My favorite piano sits in the front of my home church, Trinity Lutheran Church in Murdock Nebraska and I play my favorite piano hymns during my favorite church season of the year, Lent. It’s the time of reflection and I get to play the piano in church every Wednesday night. Lorie Line is my favorite pianist and has amazing piano hymn arrangements just perfect for Lent.
I have played the piano for Lenten services at for Trinity Lutheran Church since 1997 (I think) and sometimes I think I should change up my sheet music. But I keep going back to the Heritage Collection II because I love these standard hymns. They are friends, they give me comfort. I played this book during a very stressful time in my life and sitting at the piano at the front of the church listening to the reading of the passion served as a therapy.
Hymns included in the Heritage Collection

- Nearer, Still Nearer
- Faith of My Fathers

I have played this piano book from front to back and most pieces are at the intermediate level and have a strong arpeggio style which is easy to play but very stylish and sounds wonderful. Although I have played many pianos over the years my favorite piano is the home of my spiritual soul and faith.
As the journey of Jesus takes me through Lent, Good Friday and Easter I am humbled, I pray for peace, I glory at the promise of resurrection on Good Friday and celebrate Christ resurrection on Easter.
