Following on the heels of its successful annual Celtic Christmas Concerts, Orcas Island Community Church has announced a new monthly contemplative service featuring Windham Hill recording artist Jeff Johnson.

The first event will be on Sunday, Jan. 6 at 5:30 p.m. at the church.

With an emphasis on meditative readings, silence, reflective music and simple prayers, Senior Pastor Dick Staub says “the service is designed to tap into the deep roots of a rich, historic, Christian mystical tradition that is often lost in today’s contemporary worship.”

The service is open to the community.
