When you approach St. Barnabas, you may find a collection of orange cones and equipment. This is not some obscure Lenten practice. The equipment belongs to Sound Transit, which is doing work in and next to the street to support construction of the light rail extension north from Northgate. The tracks will run east of the freeway, but there are tie-ins to utilities and equipment for monitoring noise and vibration that are needed in front of St. Barnabas. Sound Transit has been good about helping people visiting the church to get through their barriers and work crews, so do not be deterred by the cones and activity. Have a blessed Lent!
