5/5/2008 Linfield Holden service planned

McMINNVILLE – A traditional Holden worship service of prayer and reflection will be held on Saturday, May 17, at 8 p.m. in 201 Riley Hall at Linfield College.

The Holden Evening Prayer service tells the Christian story in a poetic fashion, using a series of musical responses between participants. This contemplative form of worship is enhanced with influences from the world of jazz music, including the swing and Latin styles of jazz.

In cooperation with local churches, the Linfield College Chaplain's Office will host services of prayer and reflection throughout the academic year. A variety of musical and liturgical styles will be offered including Holden evening prayer, Taizé, Celtic, Jazz and Blues, Gospel and Native American.

Services are open to the public and sponsored by the Chaplain’s Office and the Chaplain Team. For more information call 503-883-2259.
