Taize Meditation on Wednesday, December 22nd, at 7:30 PM.

Taize worship originated in Taize, France where there is an ecumenical community of Brothers composed of Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant traditions. Each year over 100,000 people make pilgrimages to Taize for prayer, Bible study, sharing and communal work.

Taize is an ecumenical sung and silent participatory service designed to achieve a contemplative state through music, song and silence. This worship typically includes candlelight, prayers, readings, silence and soft music with repetitive words. The service is very meditative and offers a wonderful opportunity to be silent and center on the Lord.

Quoting from the Brothers, ?Short chants, repeated again and again, give Taize its meditative character. Using just a few words, the chants express a basic reality of faith, quickly grasped by the mind. As the words are sung over many times, this reality gradually penetrates the whole being?.
