The Easter season is a week of weeks, seven Sundays when we play in the mystery of Christ’s presence, mostly through the glorious Gospel of John. Today we gather with the disciples on the first Easter, and Jesus breathes the Spirit on us. With Thomas we ask for a sign, and Jesus offers us his wounded self in the broken bread. From frightened individuals, we are transformed into a community of open doors, peace, forgiveness, and material sharing such that no one among us is in need.
Holden Evening Prayer - Marty Haugen
Written in 1985-86 by Marty Haugen during a musical residency at Holden Village in the North Cascade mountains of Washington state. Holden Evening Prayer is a simple Lutheran vespers service that follows traditional form while using contemporary and inclusive language.
Together, we seek to support and draw strength from one another, reaffirming our values as people who have been called, equipped, and sent, and supporting each other’s work in stewardship and justice for all people.
