Thanksgiving 2020 QuietChurch Online Worship

QuietChurch plans a Thanksgiving-themed, online, QuietChurch on Monday, November 23, 2020, from 7:00PM EST to 8:00PM. The online-only worship uses the Jitsi.org Online Conferencing Platform (similar to ZOOM). QuietChurch is open to all spiritual seekers.

QuietChurch focuses on gathering in Reverent Quiet and silence to worship. Worshipers typically silently read, pray, meditate, or just sit in silent stillness during the worship time.  (No sermon. No dogma. No music. No noise. Just quiet.)

Worship Prompts—Thanksgiving 2020

These are optional queries or prompts that may be helpful starting places for some.

Habakkuk 3:17-19

Though the cherry trees don’t blossom
and the strawberries don’t ripen,
Though the apples are worm-eaten
and the wheat fields stunted,
Though the sheep pens are sheepless
and the cattle barns empty,
I’m singing joyful praise to God.
I’m turning cartwheels of joy to my Savior God.
Counting on God’s Rule to prevail,
I take heart and gain strength.
I run like a deer.
I feel like I’m king of the mountain!

For the Beauty of the Earth

1 For the beauty of the earth,
For the glory of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,

Refrain:
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.

2 For the wonder of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon, and stars of light, [Refrain]

3 For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild, [Refrain]

4 For each perfect gift of thine
To our race so freely given,
For thy constant love divine
Peace on earth and joy in heaven, [Refrain]
