Lenten Posts on Synod facebook Page go Rose for Laetare

Throughout Lent, we've posting short readings for Lent on the Synod facebook page. In keeping with Lent, we've kept it straight text, except on Sundays, when we do some visual art. Laetare (and its week), however, gives a chance to ease the Lenten discipline. So, it has been music all week. Check out an amazing setting of the Ave Verum Corpus, the beautiful O Come Quickly, a bluesy guitar setting of Donne's A Hymn to God the Father, and more. You can reach the Synod facebook page at Scroll through the days to enjoy samplings of poetry, prose, and maybe even some music or film related to the Lenten season.
