Submitted by Trina Kleist
Candlelight, music, chants and silence mark the Taizé-style evening prayer service offered at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 13 at Peace Lutheran Church, located at 828 W. Main St. in Grass Valley. Organizers say that short, simple prayers chanted to sacred, yet easy tunes during this half-hour service offer a chance to find calm and connection in a busy world. Peace musicians will lead the worship with music sung in harmony. Participants are invited to light candles and “lift up” prayers.
