Today’s reflection is to be led by Professor Jennifer Harvey, Professor of Religion, Drake University, Des Moines, IA; author of Dear White Christians: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation and Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children in Racially Unjust America
Spiritually homeless? Looking for meaning in your life? Wounded by the church? Desiring to reconnect with a faith community that is exploring what it means to be a faithful follower of Jesus?
The Noon Service is rooted in the beauty and simplicity of the Anglican tradition. This 60-minute worship service combines prayer, silence, music, scripture, and discussion. We sing ancient hymn texts set to evocative, timeless music prepared and led by local songwriters; we reflect on and discuss holy scripture; we pray for the needs of the world; and we share a simple Eucharistic feast using wine and home baked bread.
People who have participated in worship have commented on the welcome, the sense of intimacy and community, the richness of conversation, and the sense of reverence and playfulness. People have found their faith strengthened for the journey and a new understanding for what it means to be a Christian.
Come. Bring yourself, just as you are. Experience God’s presence and grace.
