The Sound of Sheer Silence

Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of sheer silence. (from 1 Kings 19)

Do you need the sound of sheer silence in your life? Not for a long time, but for long enough to get it back together again.

Church of the Redeemer is hosting a series of evensong services on the first Sunday of the month at 7:30 pm. This will be a time of quiet, chanting, readings, and prayers. There will be no sermon.

On February 1, 2015, this service is cancelled. It resumes on March 1, 2015.

Come to hear that still, small voice that comes only through silence.

Sample Sound of Sheer Silence service

This is the service from Sunday, November 2, 2014. There can be small changes to future services, but the basic concept, mood, and feel will remain the same.

Church of the Redeemer

Community life at Redeemer centers on worship in the Episcopal traditionArt and music vitally deepen this worship. Our faith expresses itself with service to people, locally to internationally.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
