A service modeled on the music and worship style that emerged from the Christian monastic community founded in Taizé, France in 1940. This ecumenical form of worship is based on love, peace, reconciliation, and forgiveness, with much space for searching but none for dogmatism.
This Taizé worship service is part of our series of Lenten Contemplative Worship services, which draw upon ancient and emerging spiritual traditions, using a diversity of resources from Christian communities across the globe. Worshipers can expect a warm, welcoming, sacred space lit by candlelight, contemplative prayer, and simple, distinctive music that calls us to a richer communion with God and neighbor. Although there may be short readings, there will be no sermons or homilies, leaving room for your own prayerful ponderings.
