Taizé Contemplative Service

April 12, 2017 @ 6:15 pm – 7:15 pm America/Kentucky/Louisville Timezone

The Adult Ministry Group invites you to attend this contemplative time of worship based on the Taizé prayer service. This service includes scripture readings, short periods of silence, spoken prayers, and prayers set to simple tunes that are sung repetitively. The Taizé service is named for a small village in France, where in 1940, Brother Roger Shutz, a Protestant, formed a monastic community composed of Protestants and Catholics who centered on prayer as a way to live for peace and justice in the midst of war. Today, thousands of people from all over the world pilgrimage to Taizé annually to worship in the three daily prayer services that are held, and to commune with the resident brothers and sisters of nearby Ameugny. Musicians and lay leaders from Highland will guide our time of worship together. Find a moment mid-week to pause for reflection and contemplation.
