We've made some changes to evening prayer...
As time has passed, we've found the meaning of this service not so much in the scripture or even in the gathering of people, but in the time we spend with God in the middle of busy weeks. This time doesn't have to be fancy, elaborate, or even novel. It just needs to happen.
Therefore, this service has been stripped down and updated to the parts that create space for us to do just this.
In the middle of the service is a time for you to pause the video and read scripture. Suggestions for reading are listed below the video.
Although a little different, we pray that this service will continue to be a blessing for you, and we hope that you will continue to set aside time each midweek to breathe, pray, and simply be in the presence of God.
