Wednesday Word from Rev. Roxane: New Worship Service
Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10
St. Thomas' new Contemplative/Healing Service gifts us with the opportunity to do just that. It takes a while to get silent, to shed our busyness, to smile with eyes closed, to open our hearts to to the divine, settling deep into prayer. Might you welcome this freedom? Come and join us.
Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord...the prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective. The Epistle of James
St. Thomas' new Contemplative/Healing Service is a vessel for bringing our sorrows and our wounds to God, for healing prayer, either at the altar or silently on your own, for anointing with oil. All this in the context of community, thanks be to God. Come and join us for healing in whatever way you feel led.
In silence God ceases to be an object and becomes an experience. St. Ignatius of Loyola
St. Thomas' new Contemplative/Healing Service gifts us with the opportunity to welcome God as an experience. Gathering in a sacred, candle-lit space alongside our sisters and brothers in Christ, we will share that experience. Would you welcome this opening? Come and join us.
It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere, to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. Book of Common Prayer, page 361.
St. Thomas' new Contemplative/Healing Service brings us together as a community of Christ, to break the bread, pour the wine, and gather at the table. Come and join us.
Come and fill our hearts with your love. You alone, O God, are holy. Taizé chant
St. Thomas' new Contemplative/Healing Service opens space to listen to simple chant, to engage with it, or to grow into the fullness it offers. Come and join us.
Sunday, February 19 at 5:00 in the evening. And each third Sunday of the month.
I'm experiencing those quiet and holy smiles as I anticipate our time together. And I'm
most happy to talk beforehand about any questions you've got. Come and join us.
