Common prayer, praise, and thanksgiving

Hundreds of Lutheran and Catholic voices were raised in praise, prayer, and thanksgiving at the historic worship held this past Friday, October 27, at St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Chapel Hill, commemorating the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation. Joined together in a Service of Common Prayer, the worship included both bishops—the Rev. Dr. Timothy M. Smith, bishop of the NC Synod, ELCA, and Bishop Luis R. Zarama of the Catholic Diocese of Raleigh—as well as shared leadership by deacons, lay leaders, and musicians.
