Taize Service Sunday October 23

Join us this Sunday at 5:00 pm for a Taize service. Based upon the spiritual practices of an ecumenical community of protestant brothers in rural France, the Taize service emphasizes reflection and meditation, both through the practice of silence and the repetition of music with distilled theological ideas. In the spirit of this tradition, we will create a space in the sanctuary where all are welcome to meditate, pray, and sing.

Begun in the 1950s, Taize services have become something of a global phenomenon; over 100,000 young people travel to Taize, France every year to stay and meditate, and the musical repertory is sung in more than a dozen languages.
