Many foundation stones of Christianity have their origins in Judaism, including the seven day week with one day kept for worship, daily prayer at set times, and the use of psalms and other biblical poetry in daily worship. Like their Jewish ancestors, early Christian opened and closed the day with devotional prayer, drawing on scripture as the primary source of texts. In the first half of the 20th century, scholars prepared for a renewal of morning and evening prayer.
Sung by the Bowling Green State University Harmonia Sacra, a special "Lenten Vespers: From Darkness to Light" service will provide an opportunity for meaningful reflection on this Lenten season through scripture, singing, and choral benediction.
The public is invited to join in this celebration next Friday at 6 p.m. in the sanctuary at First Presbyterian Church, Bowling Green. Organizers say it will be a "meaningful service."
The church is located at 126 S. Church St.
