Taizé Prayer Service – Option 3
Taizé Prayer Service
November 17, 6:30-7:30pm
Taizé Prayer is a repetitive prayer set to simple music, interspersed with meditation. Meditation is a form of contemplative prayer in which we move beyond words, thoughts and images, opening us to God’s mysterious silence within us. There is no teaching, or preaching. It is short chants repeated over and over in the dark. As Swiss Brother John says, “It is a time to rest in God and let the words listened to and sung penetrate one’s being.”
This form of prayer was initiated more than 70 years ago, in the small village of Taizé, France, by a community of monks. They emphasize service, ecumenicalism, and reconciliation between divided faith traditions.
