Taizé Evensong – Sunday October 28 – All are Welcome
Sunday, October 28 at 6:00 p.m.
Followed by a Soup and Bread Supper
On Sunday, October 28 at 6 p.m. the Adult Choir will lead a meditative service of Evening Prayer in the tradition of Taizé. We will gather in the candlelit sanctuary for a service of contemplation and music.
he Taizé tradition began many years ago in the ecumenical monastic community in Taizé, France. Brother Roger, Taizé’s founder, arrived in the French village in 1940. In the midst of World War II, he dreamed of creating a community where reconciliation was a daily reality. He began by giving shelter to refugees of the war. For over 50 years the community has drawn thousands of pilgrims from different countries and various faith backgrounds who are transformed by the beautiful worship, deep spirituality, and commitment to global reconciliation and justice. The liturgy of the Taizé service is meant to “quiet the soul.” A Taizé service alternates readings with periods of silence and meditative chants, sung repetitively in prayer. The service provides an opportunity to become more peaceful and centered in the midst of our busy lives.
Please join us for the Evensong service on October 28 at 6:00 p.m., followed by a soup and bread supper in the Parish Hall. Childcare will be provided during the service. All are welcome.
