During the summer months, we here at Pilgrim find it is a great time to experiment and to find new ways of worshiping together. As a community of faith we want to continue to grow and expand.
This will be our third of three contemplative prayer services this summer in our air conditioned church parlor. This will be a more intimate service, without a sermon, with singing, silence, and guided meditation drawn from a variety of sources. Paul Kraus - Director of Music at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Joliet, and long-time Sing to Live tenor will be our special musical guest.
Contemplative Worship is an opportunity to still the internal busyness, allowing us to settle deeply into our spiritual center. Contemplative Worship practices us in the rhythm of Christ, a rhythm of moving into prayer and communion with God before going out to engage the world in our work and relationships.
Contemplative Worship does not imply that a person must be proficient in a certain skill or spiritual discipline to participate. It simply implies a desire to seek God and to be open to however God might choose to move within our lives. We hope you will join us.
