Taize This Week!
What is Taize:
"Taize is an ecumenical sung and silent participatory prayer service designed to achieve a contemplative state through music, song and silence." from Understanding Taize Worship
Taize offers worshippers an opportunity for silent reflection on scripture and prayer through music and intercession. It comes out of a religious community in Taize, France that was formed by Brother Roger Schutz in 1940. To this day, hundreds of thousands of people make pilgrimage to the Taize community to participate in its worship and service.
All are invited for this evening of music and prayer!
