On September 26th, we all had supper with the Urban Servant Corps. They are a group of people who have graduated from college and chose to spend a year living together and volunteering at various community service organizations around Denver. We were informed that some of them would be leaving early to attend a Christian worship service known as the spirit of Taize. It is a service held once a month at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Denver. I attended the service with a few of the Urban Servant Corps people and a handful of Wartburg students.
It was a silent service that used music and prayer to worship. Visitors were asked to enter and exit in complete silence to allow people to reflect and pray. I really enjoyed the service, and actually got more out of it than listening to a pastor preach for an hour. It was a small group of people who were all there because they wanted a different kind of worship service that revolved around more reflection than hearing the scripture.
