During the summer months, Church of the Holy Spirit celebrates an expanded series of outdoor worship services. The theme for the services is “Celebrating God in Creation.”
Ninth century Celtic theologian John Scotus Eriugena wrote that God speaks to us through two books: the “big book” of Creation, and the “little book” of Scripture. Learning of God through God’s Creation receded in emphasis in subsequent centuries. In recent years, environmental concerns have brought a new focus on the created order. In 2011 the House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church issued a pastoral teaching urging Episcopalians “To lift up prayers in personal and public worship for environmental justice, for sustainable development, and for help in restoring right relations both among humankind and between humankind and the rest of creation.”
Our outdoor journey worship services celebrate God’s presence in the created order.
The services begin at 5:30 PM. We meet at the labyrinth, and then proceed together to the site(s) for each service. Please wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes. You may also want to bring a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on. In case of inclement weather, we will move the services indoors. We look forward to worshiping with you in God’s Creation.
Please see our calendar, newsletters, website, and e-mails for the current schedule of services. For more information, contact Rev. Kathy
