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.
Thank you for your support, understanding and cooperation with state and local leaders who are urging cooperation to help limit the spread of the expanding COVID-19 pandemic. Online resources remain as an effort to continue to gather for worship and prayer. Pastor Craig conducts Services of Prayer and Reflection that will be found on YouTube and Facebook.
Third Sunday after Epiphany As we continue through the time after Epiphany, stories of the call to discipleship show us the implications of our baptismal calling to show Christ to the world. Jesus begins proclaiming the good news and calling people to repentance right after John the Baptist is arrested for preaching in a similar way. Knowing that John was later executed, we see at the very outset the cost of discipleship. Still, the two sets of brothers leave everything they have known and worked for all their lives to follow Jesus and fish for people.
