With the help of others, I hold a monthly Universal Worship evening in Frome where all are welcome to come and find their connection with Oneness and Truth through simple devotional singing, prayer, readings, stories and meditation. In taking part, we bring the blessing of our presence and, in turn, we are blessed by the occasion.
Many people no longer feel comfortable or connected to existing established faiths. But they still yearn for something which gives them a sense of belonging and reminds them that there is a mystery to life which we may or may not call God. Worship re-connects us to that mystery and when it does, it enriches our lives and strengthens who we are.
Our Universal Worship evening follows a set format lasting just over an hour. Each evening has a theme around which the content is organised. For example, recent themes have been “fearlessness”, “beauty”, “journeys”, “wisdom” and “impermanence”. It takes place on the second or third Tuesday in the month at the Black Swan Round Tower in Frome. It starts at 7.45pm and finishes by 9.00pm. Afterwards, everyone is invited to stay for a hot drink.
Universal Worship can take place wherever there is a suitable venue and a group of people who want to enjoy this kind of relaxed, inclusive worship where it does not matter whether we all think the same way. If you are interested in bringing Universal Worship to where you live, please get in touch.
