From September through May we hold Taize Prayer Services on the second Friday of the month at 7:30. Join us on Friday, September 14, 2012, at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary for this candlelight service of songs, scripture reading, silence, prayers of the people, and prayers for peace among all people.
Taizé is a meditative prayer service that incorporates simple, repetitive song and chant, scripture readings, and periods of group silence in a setting of peace and soft light that fosters communion with God. Through Taizé, participants can worship in a community setting, yet remain open to the voice of God and discover the prayer within themselves.
Taizé Prayer is an ecumenical form of prayer meant to foster reconciliation and peace among all people. Christians of all traditions share in this ecumenical group. Taizé Prayer is meditative common prayer. Gathered in the presence of Christ, we sing uncomplicated repetitive songs, uncluttered by too many words, allowing the mystery of God to become tangible through the beauty of simplicity.
