The Art and Practice of Prayer
Lenten Study led by Pastor Ed
What is prayer? Does it simply consist of getting something out of God or does it tap into something deeper in us, a longing for intimate connection, as a parent picks up a child to hold them? This curriculum is to start the discussion as to what prayer means and how we regain a practice that is at the core of who we are. We will hear from theologians and thinkers who share their own journeys of prayer. Part of the curriculum will provide suggestions for practices that can either be done alone or communally.
Monday nights 7:00 p.m. March 18 through April 22
Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m.March 13 through April 17
Topics will include: Prayer as Emptying and Making Room; Prayer as Communion; Prayer as the Gift of Presence; Prayer as Breath for the Journey; Prayer as an Agent of Transformation; Prayer as Listening

Silence & Singing, Shadow & Candlelight, Prayer & Reflection
Taizé worship is an ecumenical sung and silent prayer service designed to achieve a contemplative space through songs, Scripture, prayer, silence and candlelight. The sanctuary is beautifully designed just for Taizé and features soft lighting, flowing fabric and many candles. The music, which is contemplative in nature, emphasizes simple one or two line phrases usually from the Psalms, other passages of Scripture or liturgy. Short chants are repeated over and over again to give the service a contemplative atmosphere. The service includes a time of prayers. Taizé provides a time at the end of the day to relax from the stress of the day’s activities. It offers a time for worship and reflection, a time for calming the body and the mind. In the silence God’s word can reach the hidden corners of our hearts, and the light of Christ can reach, heal, and transform us. Join us as we experience this beautiful service!
