On Thursday, July 4, we held our first weekly Meditate with Music session in the church at 12:30 p.m. These 20-minute breaks from the bustle and stress of a big city downtown offer visitors the option of emptying their minds or directing their thoughts towards spiritual reflection — two of many ways to quietly recharge for the rest of the day and the close of a week.
Music Director John Terauds provides slow, quiet instrumental music as well as a Psalm sung in plainchant, interspersed by silence. We have arranged some pews in an accessible location at the foot of the chancel steps to provide as much focus on meditation as possible. There is also a printed sheet with a spiritual reflection available each week.
If you’re in the area, come and give this respite a try, every Thursday at 12:30 p.m., until August 22. You can even bring your lunch, if you wish.
