This Sunday afternoon, November 11 at 4:00 p.m., we’re having a special worship service here at Berkey, a jazz vespers focusing on Matthew 5:3, “Blessed are the poor in spirit.”
A major feature of the service will be music by The Dean’s List, a jazz quartet that Berkey member Randy Horst plays in (he’s the bassist). Other members include Sonny Carreño (percussion), Danny Dean (guitar), and Sam Que (saxophone). The Dean’s List will play for about 45-50 minutes, while the remaining 15 minutes will be spoken parts from Take Our Moments and Our Days: An Anabaptist Prayer Book, which was developed by a group of Mennonite writers. Also included will be intercessory prayer with candle lighting for the needs of the world. We hope you will join us.
