Frederick Buechner, a pastor and theologian, once said “Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.” These are wise words for us today, as we are bombarded with images of violence around the world and in our neighborhoods, and we hear anger and sarcasm come from the mouths of those in power. Scripture tells us over and over again to not be afraid even in the midst of terrible things, and to find time every day to draw closer to God.
So this December, we are offering three weekday evening services that help us let go of the anxiety and anger of the world. These services will be in the Taizé tradition. Taizé is a form of spiritual practice from a Christian community in Taizé, France, who practice their faith through repetitive chanting and prayer. We will be having short, 30 to 40 minute services on three consecutive Tuesdays using the Taizé tradition of repetitive prayer and chanting, ending with communion. Everyone is welcome to join us, whether you are a member of this or any church.
Join us to find solace, comfort, and community through the love of God and the company of fellow seekers.
