Jazz Vespers for a Broken World

Jazz Vespers: Prayers for a Broken World September 13 at 5:00 pm, outside. You’re invited to join us for a jazz-infused celebration of faith, bringing the tradition of Vespers outdoors to the West Lawn. The Rev. Tracy Johnson Russell, rector of St. Monica’s, Hartford, will be our preacher. Alcee and Caleb Wright are building the jazz music component, inspiring and empowering us in faith. We’ll have a poem from Alice Walker’s book Taking the Arrow Out of the Heart recited by Kimberly Wilson. And we’re using Diocese of Missouri Bishop Deon Johnson’s Anti-Racism Covenant to shape our prayers for that evening. As we speak the depth of our woes, we will hear through music and message of God’s presence with us on the journey. We are not alone. God gives us the strength! Join us and bring a friend! Please register via Eventbrite
