Third Tuesdays at 6:00pm October 17, November 21, December 19, January 16, February 20, March 20, April 17, May 15
Holy Hour is a time for you - a safe space for you - a time for your needs.
Perhaps it is a time for mindfulness, meditation, or contemplation, .....a time for deep thoughts, and not so deep thoughts.
Maybe its a time for rest, relaxation, or to sit and do nothing. Maybe its a siesta from work or a prelude to a great evening. A chance to gather with friends for fellowship and a beverage?
Maybe its a time to pray or hear soul inspiring music. Maybe a time for questions?
Maybe its a time to be disconnected from the world... or a time to work from an undisclosed location while sitting in a beautiful space and surrounded by beautiful music.
Maybe its a time to pray for our world, for peace and reconciliation .... or for other things that way heavy on your heart
Maybe its a time to network... ... or band together to help others
Maybe its none of these things, but something else for you.
So...Join us for Holy Hour (with a Twist)! 6pm Third Tuesdays (starting Oct 17)
Get your Holy Hour cup at the Virginia Square Metro on Oct 17th in the morning.
Holy hour takes places within the framework of Evensong, which is a short liturgy (40-45 minutes) which marks the end of the day. Its roots come out of ancient monastic practices, and its tradition rich and varied....and one for all people. At the center is glorious and beautiful music that is sung, prayers that are offered. Following Evensong, we share in fellowship (Happy Hour - the Twist part). Some might choose to go to a neighborhood restaurant following Holy hour.
“Evensong hangs on the wall of life like an old, familiar cloak passed through the generations. Rich with prayer and scripture, it is nevertheless totally nonthreatening. It is a service into which all can stumble without censure – a rambling old house where everyone can find some corner to sit and think, to listen with half-attention, trailing a few absentminded fingers of faith or doubt in its passing stream.” (Stephen Hough, pianist.)
