Wednesday Evening Prayer – Come together during these long, dark winter nights for an intimate mid-week prayer service on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. before the Community Night supper. The service is entirely led by lay persons, and each week of the month we use a different liturgy. Most Wednesdays, a parishioner gives a homily based on scripture reading of their choosing. In addition, every first Wednesday of the month, Albrecht von Gaudecker leads us in meditative Taizé chanting, and occasionally we do a contemplative service that involves prayers and reflections followed by periods of silence and meditation. This is a special time to spiritually refuel mid-week, worship using diverse liturgical styles, and listen to a fellow parishioner bear witness to the Good News. Please join us!
January 28: Epiphany Contemplative Service led by Virginia Ritchie (no homily)
Community Night Classes – Two classes are being offered. 1) The Rev. Elaine Thomas is leading the confirmation class and 2) Paula Kettlewell is leading a study of the Old Testament with a focus on the Book of Genesis.
Kononia of Charlottesville and St. Paul’s Memorial Church present a Lenten Retreat, Where Deep Gladness and Need Meet-God’s Urgent Call to Be Stewards of Creation, led by The Rev. Deborah M. Warner, the rector of Church of the Messiah in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
Through Biblical stories, contemporary writing and images, participants in the retreat will be invited to reflect on how each of us is being called by God to be stewards of creation.
Questions that will be considered:
• Who is my neighbor in the world of climate change?
• Why does this matter to the faith community, now?
• What difference can I / we make? How?
Free and open to the public. All are welcome!
