On the heels of this past Sunday’s Gospel narrative “The Road to Emmaus,” this week’s Cantor’s Corner focuses on a hymn which begins with a quote from that story: “Abide with us, fast falls the eventide…”
This could be another among those we could consider “rehearsing” throughout our lifetimes – both for the road along the way, and for when “eventide” comes for ourselves, as the text writer experienced. We are never alone. Never.
-Cantor David Cherwien
