Evening Worship during COVID

Contemplative Evening Worship at Pilgrim

Fall 2020

Sunday Night Contemplative Worship at Pilgrim Lutheran continues this fall, but — as with so many other things in our communities in these days — it will look a little different. These contemplative worship gatherings will happen via zoom — except for one special evening outdoor gathering in September. Each service will feature the same kind of contemplative word weavings that Pilgrim’s Sunday night worship services have been known for since 2002, as well as including some other familiar elements from the past, along with creative new dimensions. Because of copyright matters with poetry shared during these services, these worship services will not be available for viewing later. Here is the overview for September through November:

  • 2nd Sundays, 6:51 pm Holden Contemplative Evening Prayer, followed by coffee conversation — worship via zoom

  • 4th Sundays, 6:51 pm Woven Together in Spirit: Contemplative Worship, followed by poetry reflections and conversation — worship via zoom

  • One special outdoor contemplative worship service, Sunday, Sept. 20, 6:51 pm, on the street beside Pilgrim: Night Light: Outdoor Sunday Evening Contemplative Communion 

Themes and dates of the upcoming contemplative services:

Sept 13 — Thy Hand Hath Provided

Sept 27 — What can I say what can I say

Oct 11 — As a Child I Danced

Oct 25 — We Can Do No Other

Nov 8 — The Fragrance of Prayer

Nov 22 — It is enough, Lord
