Lenten Worship : MarcH 13th - April 10th, 2019

I will be leading Taize Worship Service at Bethany Lutheran Church, 4200 N 204th St, Elkhorn, NE at 6:30 pm every Wednesday, beginning on March 13 thru April 10, 2019. This service will follow our community meal at 5:30 pm. You are invited to attend both the meal and the Taize service.

Taize is devoted to a common life of prayer and simplicity. The mantra style of chant can quiet a busy mind and can help prepare us for centering prayer or meditation. As we begin to focus on the sung prayer, the mind’s clutter quiets, allowing us to get lost in the devotional energy created. As we surrender to

the emptiness, these frequently repeated refrains lead us to the space behind the chatter and into the silence of our hearts where we meet God.

I hope you can join us! If you have any questions, please email me at jrainforth@icloud.com.



Please join me for a free meditation class at Bethany Lutheran Church, 4200 N 204th St, Elkhorn, NE on Tuesday mornings at 9 am. We meditate in the Small Prayer Chapel from 9 to 9:45 am.

You will find this as a time to be still and meditate in a peaceful setting. My favorite verse is Psalm 46:10. This is our way of centering ourselves as we each meditate in our individual ways.

I hope you will join us, please message me if you have any questions.
