A Contemplative Service for the Fourth Sunday of Advent

by Christine Sine

Christmas is quickly approaching but we don’t want to miss this last week of Advent. Take time to breathe, relax and enter the silence of this beautiful taize style contemplative service. A big thank you to St Andrews Episcopal Church in Seattle for allowing me to post this.

A contemplative service with music in the style-of-Taize for the Fourth Sunday of Advent. Carrie Grace Littauer, prayer leader, with music by Kester Limner and Andy Myers.
