Lenten Soup Supper and Evening Prayer

Thursdays during Lent, March 14 to April 11, 2019

6pm – 7pm Dinner and Reading

Soup is served at 6 but join us when you can, until 7pm.  Dinner is free.  You can make a donation if you like, and you can sign up to bring soup or bread.

During the first half hour (6 to 6:30) we seek to create an atmosphere of rest and quiet after our long day, eating while we hear someone read something inspirational to us.  We’ll hear from a different reader (and book) each week, a monastic spiritual practice connected to our forum series.  Children are welcome to join us for this experience – it can be an interesting challenge or game trying to observe silence (and a little noise is OK).   From 6:30 to 7pm, we resume conversation.

7pm-7:30pm Sung Evening Prayer (Vespers)

We move into the sanctuary for a brief service of worship, including psalms, a reading from scripture connected to what was read at the meal, a hymn, and intercessions.

If you like, stay around for choir practice.  Kids rehearse from 6:30-7:30; Adults rehearse from 7:30-9pm.
