Lutheran Lenten Services and my Favorite Piano
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 her amazing piano hymn arrangements just perfect for Lent.
I have played the piano for the Lutheran Lenten Services at 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.
These hymns are friends, they have seen me through the worse times in my life and given me comfort. Sitting at the piano at the front of the church listening to the reading of the passion served as a therapy.

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. I finished a daily Advent Devotional Series and this year I will concentrate on a weekly Lent series revolving around the Lutheran Lenten services at Trinity Lutheran Church.
Each week will feature a Hymns of the Lenten season and a Lenten devotional.
