Tennebrae Service Friday at 7PM


We will have our first Tennebrae service tomorrow at 7PM. This service combines Christian history, the natural darkening of the end of day, candlelight, silent meditation,and reflection on the human capacity for evil.

My partner in ministry is leading this service and it is one she brings to our congregation for the first time. I am honored to assist her and it will be my first Tennebrae service.

This is a deeply moving service, but it is not appropriate for children.

This sounds like a perfect fit with the practice of tonglen.
