  • 1-Contemplative Worship Service Script, 8-page PDF file and 3-page WORD file for publishing text

This quiet, deep service is filled with prayer, contemplation, chanting, and ritual. It draws upon both Christian scripture and the poems of the 14th-century Persian Sufi poet known as “Hafez”. In a world where forces strive to pit religions against each other, this service welcomes and befriends all who seek The Holy. Includes ritual for the imposition of ashes.

Content includes information about worship preparation and guidelines for using mystical poetry and chanting in worship — as well as practical tips for preparing holy ashes. Please note: Due to copyright laws, this script does not include published poems of Hafez. They are easily available online and in books. Notation of sources included in service script.
