Fourth Sunday of Lent

The readings for Lent have a wonderful rhythm that swings between “you need to repent, you terrible sinner” and “God loves you so incredibly much and will forgive everything.” The Fourth Sunday of Lent is overflowing with God’s abundant love and grace.

While planning music for the Fourth Sunday of Lent, focusing on God’s love and grace is the order of the day, but we don’t want to stray too far from the need for repentance, either. It is only in recognizing his own debasement that the prodigal finally returns to his father.
