Come as you are!
Nishma is a Saturday evening contemplative worship service at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. The word nishma, is an ancient Aramaic word referring to the spirit or vital breath that is instilled in us by God. But more than its definition, the word carries with it a connotation of the mysterious and Godly utterance—God’s breath—that gives vitality and hope to life. It is our deep desire that this worship experience provide a safe place for all to open their hearts to the presence of the spirit, and that we may begin to catch our breath once again. Marked by times of quiet and space, this worship experience was created to stir all of our senses, and every effort has been made to create a worship space that is inviting and accessible. We hope, also, to create an atmosphere of sincerity; one where, through music, movement, art and interaction, we may be present to the mysterious breath of God. You are invited to explore the special places that have been created for prayer and contemplation. At any time, but especially during the Prayers and Communion, you may come forward and light a candle for someone or as a personal act of prayer. During the service, feel free to enter into prayer in a way that is meaningful to you. You may remove your shoes, sit on the floor or a pillow, or enjoy the stillness from your seat. The music has been carefully chosen to help us enter into the mystery and wonder of our faith in a fresh and new way. Some of the words to the hymns may sound familiar and traditional, and many are. Most of the music, however, has been arranged to provide a unique interpretation of the timeless poetry present in the words. Take a long, deep breath, and enter with us into the life-giving mystery of Christ!
