So many people think that Lent is about giving something up rather than taking something on to go deeper into the faith.
I have so many wonderful, thoughtful readers of this blog. I wonder if you might be willing to team up to create an online Lenten devotional? I was thinking especially about hymns.
This can really take any form you want. I don't have any guidelines, but here are some thoughts to get you started.
Here's the plan: use the voice memo app on your phone to record a thought or two about your chosen hymn and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, don't forget to say who you are, where you live, and what you do so we can add that in.
You can speak informally, or write out a script first. It doesn't matter to me. You can talk for as long as you like, but I'll probably edit it down to about 2-3 minutes or so.
My plan is to edit these together with some music and then push them out during Lent.

“I finally said Kevin [Bowyer], this Sorabji thing... this is just a stunt, right?
