Labyrinth Vigils: Quiet Witness for Justice and Peace

Labyrinth Vigils: Quiet Witness for Justice and Peace

The term vigil denotes a period of wakefulness.

This fall, on the third Monday of each month, August–November, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Scarritt Bennett Center is offering an opportunity to come together in wakefulness to all that is going on around us as we approach this coming election. Standing together in solidarity we can bear witness to those things which need changing.

We invite you to stand with us in vigil of quiet witness for justice and peace on the outdoor labyrinth of the Scarritt Bennett Center.

Upcoming Vigils:

Tuesdays in the Chapel

Tuesdays in the Chapel is a weekly 35-minute worship service held each Tuesday at 12:30 pm in Wightman Chapel. It includes preaching, scripture, prayer, music and features guest preachers from a variety of backgrounds and faiths. This mid-week “Sabbath break” provides a peaceful space for renewal and spiritual refreshment.

Vespers & All That Jazz

Vespers & All That Jazz is a worship experience using words and music from a variety of sources to encounter the Sacred. We understand jazz to be a process of making music; music which shapes the service and helps us experience the interruptive Spirit of God in ourselves and others. The style is experiential. Open minds, open hearts, and open ears are essential. Justice, compassion, peace, and wonder are hoped-for responses.
