About the Book

Over the course of the year 2020 and beyond, no one has been untouched by the effects of the global health pandemic. So much of what we presumed was durable proved otherwise. Those of us who long for certainty, consistency, and predictable patterns of routine frequently found ourselves struggling to get our bearings. Cast Your Net Again…For Such a Time as This by Lana Lee Marler (an eclectic collection of scripture, prayer, music, written words, and artistic expressions that afford us gracious gifts of perspective and assurance) provides a steadying, strengthening force for the living of these days. In this companion music book, The Vocal Music Artistry from Cast Your Net Again...For Such a Time as This by Lana Lee Marler, you will find the sheet music and audio hyperlinks for the ten songs offered in Cast Your Net Again. In this music, one can hear and then experience in the song lyrics reflections of the perspectives of fellow pilgrims who seek to live faithfully as followers of Christ. Likewise, by way of the wisdom gleaned from Christian traditions that span the centuries, we receive the assurance that we are not alone. So much of what we have experienced since the onset of the global pandemic has had a disorienting effect on our day-to-day lives, the institutions, and the organizations on which we have counted, and – if we are being honest – on our faith. As you have opportunity to peruse the pages of this companion sheet music book - listen, play, sing the music and linger over the lyrics - you will find there are gifts of faith, hope, and love that sustain and keep us through it all. This collection of music should endure for years to come as a unique resource of inspiration and blessing “For Such a Time as This.”

About the Author

Lana Lee Marler offers her second book in this writing. Her first book, which was also a personal worship resource, entitled: Follow Me – A Seasonal Journey, was published in 2017. Lana is a poet, singer/song writer, and church music director. A wife and mother, she is partner in ministry with her husband who is a United Methodist minister. Lana is an artist in any medium, but long ago chose music to express her relationship to God. Her faith journey led her to a major in sacred music in college and has crossed the landscape of three denominations: Baptist, Methodist and Episcopal. Spending countless hours mastering the hymnody and liturgies of these quite varied traditions has added depth and richness to her Christian perspective. Moreover, her musical DNA is infused with the music of the times in which she grew-up – the 1960’s. Whether the song is Joan Baez’s “Swing Low” or “Just As I Am” sung from a back row Baptist pew, she connects with each tradition in authenticity. In 2004, Lana and her husband, Rev. William D. Marler, co-founded Jacob’s LadderTM Community Development Corporation, a non-profit charity serving inner-city Memphis, where the Gospel of Christ is shared through community-building, housing rehabilitation and education. All proceeds from this book will go to benefit the communities served by Jacob’s LadderTM. (
