Whidbey Islanders gather for Day of Prayer

Everyone is invited to World Day of Prayer events on Whidbey Island Thursday, Sept 8.

There will be two prayer gatherings scheduled by Living Circle, a local interfaith spiritual community. These are open house style prayer vigils that will include various impromptu musical and group prayers as well as  intentional entering into the silence of prayer. Bring an instrument if you feel inspired to offer a musical prayer or just join in.

Gatherings are planned from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Services Alternative Building in Coupeville and from 6 to 7 p.m. at Smith Park in Oak Harbor.

Organizers say the World Day of Prayer will be especially important this year amidst all the turmoil taking place.
