Bluegrass Evening Prayer in June and July
By Amanda Weber, Director of Worship and the Arts
Westminster’s Wednesday Evening Worship continues through June and July, in a bluegrass style! Through an exciting collaboration with Green Minneapolis, Bluegrass Evening Prayer in June will take place in Peavey Plaza and will feature a liturgy written by local composer (and Westminster friend) J. David Moore, which Westminster commissioned last year. In July, we return to Westminster’s Lower Plaza to sing “Mountain Vespers,” a liturgy written by Kent Gustavson at Holden Village, a retreat center in Washington state.
Both June and July have the same timeline: we will gather at 5:45 pm for an “Oldie-but-Goodie” hymn sing-along; evening prayer is from 6-6:30 pm; and all are welcome to head to the Upper Plaza at Westminster for an outdoor cookout following worship. This service is fun, informal, and family-friendly! It is a great opportunity to bring a friend or meet a neighbor! For more information, or to help with greeting/ushering, contact the Rev. Dr. David Tsai Shinn.
