Each week I like to post a link to the Taize style service held at St Andrews Episcopal Church in Seattle, which they generously allow me to share. I know that many of you have been enriched and nourished by the quiet contemplation of this service. I hope that you take time to enjoy this week’s service as well.
A contemplative service with music in the style-of-Taize for the Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost.
Carrie Grace Littauer, prayer leader, with music by Kester Limner and Andy Myers.

This week I am adding information on another contemplative treat that St Andrews is offering. I loved the book Holy Troublemakers and Unconventional Saints and I am really looking forward to walking this tour as well.
Saints from a diversity of faiths and backgrounds “who have rocked the religious boat on behalf of love and justice” are featured as part of this self-guided tour. Located on accessible pathways on the west lawn at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church, enjoy a physically distanced tour at your own pace discovering stories about new people inspiring change in our world. Used with permission from Daneen Aker, author of Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints this is a children’s book emphasizing the stories of women, LGBTQ people, people of color, and others who are too often written out of religious narratives. A great outing for families and individuals.
Free and open to the public daily through September 20th.
