by Christine Sine

It is wonderful to have these contemplative services to help us enter into the spirit of the season of Advent. I so appreciate St Andrews Episcopal Church in Seattle giving me permission to repost these. I am always delighted to hear how many of you are also blessed by these.

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