Good Christian liturgy is friendship in action,
love taking thought...
thought-through and relished, planned and prepared;
a way for the relationship to grow and at the same time
a way of demonstrating what the relationship is all about.
The Selah Service
This is a contemporary contemplative service led by acclaimed Christian musician Jeff Johnson. It draws many people from outside St. Aidan’s and offers another opportunity to experience God. Selah, a musical term found in the Psalms likely meaning “to pause,” is a worship service of sacred music, readings and silent prayer. Selah services utilize simple Taize style chant, hymns and instrumental passages combined with readings from Scripture and prayers of the ancient Christian tradition. It happens 4-6 times a year and is advertised in the Crab Cracker and on this website.
The Selah Service Reflections series features readings from the Psalms with music produced by Selah worship leader, Jeff Johnson. There is also a two minute time for silent prayer featuring the sound of the ocean outside the Abbey of Iona, Scotland. St. Aidan’s own Ann Boid is the Psalm reader for this series which currently features ten reflections. To view all of the available selections, please go to: https://selahservice.bandcamp.com/
