Singing is one of the most important forms of prayer. A few words sung over and over to a simple melody reinforce the meditative quality of prayer. They express a basic reality of faith that can be grasped by the intellect and then gradually penetrate the heart and the whole being. The simple Taize songs provide a way to “pray without ceasing” day or night, alone or with a group.
Join us for one or both of the Lenten Taize services, on Wednesday evenings- February 28 and March 14 at 7:00 pm. If you would like to listen to some of these Taize songs in advance of the services, simply Google “Taize Songs” and you will be directed to multiple resources.
Our Day of Meditation is tomorrow, February 24th, from 9am to 12pm. There will be a light brunch (please RSVP if you haven’t) and bring your journals if you can (if you don’t have one, one can be provided). We hope you will be able to join us for this wonderful opportunity to bring some peace, purpose, and calm into our lives.
It is a fun and games Dinner Church, so bring your favorite game and gather for fellowship and fun in The Gallery at 6pm!
Join us this Sunday, February 18th for breakfast at 8:30, and stories and play at 9!
Due to icy and hazardous road conditions, worship and all other church activities have been cancelled for Sunday, February 11th. Please stay safe and warm!
We offer this prayer from the liturgy for you and hope you find some stillness and silence.
O Holy One,
on mountaintops and valley floors
you reveal to us the light of your love.
Our heart’s desire is to bask in the amazing glory of this divine presence.
With each encounter, we are changed and transformed.
With each hand we hold we re-member
our connection to you and to creation.
Draw us nearer that we might experience the Spirit in ways beyond our wildest imagining.
Help us, O Holy One, to live our lives
as a reflection of the light of love shining in our lives.
May our walk among our siblings being a blessing,
bearing light into dark places,
hope to displace despair,
and love that casts out hate.
Our world is hurting
and needs people who are living the way of compassion,
seekers of the way of Jesus.
May we hear the Spirit speaking to us and saying,
“In the wilderness, you are beloved, you are beloved.
Live this love.” [unknown]
