A few big things are coming up this week, including Good Friday and Easter.

Last year Easter was ‘new’ for us.

This year it will be ‘new’ again for me.

This whole death thing is quite uncomfortable. 

Last night, in Niagara On The Lake,  I sang in a concert of The Crucifixion, a choral meditation on the sacred Passion of Christ.

Some text from one of the pieces of music says, “Help us to pray and watch and mourn…”

Help us pray.  That seems relatively easy.

Help us watch.  That also seems doable.

Help us mourn?  That is tricky.  And noble.
