Passiontide Passiontune

This Sunday was another blessed Sunday without a sermon. In its place we read the passion narrative according to Mark. This day always leaves me with that strange sadness mixed with hope. Hope for the love God has waited to share. I apologize if I get sentimental, but I heard the words to an old song in a new light as I noticed the colors draping the cross changed from purple to red.

(Chicago, Essen Germany Feb. 1977)
"As time goes on
I realize
Just what you mean
To me
And now
Now that you're near
Promise your love
That I've waited to share
And dreams
Of our moments together
Color my world with hope of loving you"

James Pankow
