Ecumenical Evening Prayers during Lent and Holy Week
The 'working group celebrations' of the Woerdense Council of Churches (consisting of: Jan Compagner, Marianne Kors, Johanna Schilling, Imca Scholte and Jan Uittenbroek) has prepared a series of ecumenical evening prayers for Wednesdays during Lent, and for the first three days of the good week. Always at seven o'clock in the evening, in the Lutheran church.
Two of these ecumenical evening prayers also took place, on March 4 and 11. With great interest and many positive reactions, And - as is known - the moment came when a major line had to be drawn through the entire project.....
Hereby the texts of the planned evening prayers on Wednesday 25 March and Wednesday 1 April, and those for Monday 6 April, Tuesday 7 April and Wednesday 8 April. Obviously, these could not and cannot take place in the intended manner. But perhaps it is a possibility to make some time at home for these evening prayers at the moments for which they were intended?
