Taize Worship, based on the teachings of Brother Roger from Taize France, uses music with simple melody lines and periods of silence to quiet the soul and renew the spirit. There is no sermon--just a meditative service with candlelight, prayers, readings, silence, and soft music with repetitive words. The service offers a wonderful opportunity to be silent and center on The Lord.
Led by the Met Labyrinth group and the Rev. Dr. John Joseph Mastandrea.
