TAIZE in the Sanctuary

Taize workshop serviceTaize —Monday, January 23, 7:00-8:00pm, Sanctuary

Join us for a beautiful singing meditation service. Our Taize service has no order of service or sermon. We enter a candle-lit space where musical instruments are playing softly. Voices may be singing or chanting, inviting others to join.

The Taize Community (in Taize, France) has been an international, ecumenical, contemplative community advocating for peace and justice since 1940. They have created a simple style of worship comprised of music and readings to encourage thoughtfulness and a peaceful mind. Taize worship is a prayer service consisting of meditative singing and periods of silence in order to reach a contemplative state. Want to play an instrument? Contact Kristen at info@uuccwc.org for more information.
