Lent Mixtapes

Currently, in the church calendar, we are in the season of Lent. This time is generally marked by a deep introspection, meditation, and focus upon those dark and deep whispers in our hearts from which we spend the rest of the year trying to numb and distract ourselves. To serve us in this time, I have made a couple of mixtapes to aid in our meditations.

May we drink deeply the words of those crying out to God in these songs and let their music draw us to mourning for all the ways we have acted, such that our God had to die to deal with it. Feel free to download and share this as you like, and may it bless you this Lenten season.

* The phrase “kyrie eleison” used in this song is greek for “Lord have mercy”. It’s thought to be one of the oldest Christian liturgical phrases. [Cover Art: from a lithograph series on Job by Czech artist Oldrich Kulhanek. Be sure to check out his other stuff; it’s incredible.]
