This service follows the practice of the ancient church, beginning at sunset and waiting for the appearance of the light of Christ.
Each hour of the night, we hear a Scripture reading, pray, sing, and contemplate as we are led by ten different worship leaders and preachers. In addition to teachings written for each reading, every worship leader has written an original song in response.
