Historic All Souls Church in Stony Brook Village (61 Main Street) offers a weekly
Tuesday inter-denominational Morning Prayer Service. All are welcome to attend.
The service includes confession and forgiveness of sins, Psalms, readings from
Old Testament (Torah) and New Testament, reflections on the readings, the
Apostle’s Creed, Intentions to God, Collects, and the Our Father. The observance
of daily worship has been part of Christian tradition since the fourth century and
derives from the Jewish practice of reciting the Shema morning and evening
prayer at synagogue.
The Morning Prayer service is led by long-term Stony Brook residents Dan Kerr
from All Souls Church and Don Estes from The Stony Brook Community Church.
Dan is an intercultural consultant and college professor and Don is a retired TWA
pilot and former Commodore of the Stony Brook Yacht Club.
The Tuesday service begins at 8:00am and runs about 30 minutes. The early
start allows people to get to work or school on time. Christians of all
denominations will recognize the readings and most of the prayers. People of all
faiths and traditions are welcome to join. Both Dan & Don believe “any day that
begins with prayer is likely to be a good day.”
