Taizé Service Coming to Trinity Sep 18
We have an interesting opportunity to reclaim some of the importance of meditation when a new service debuts on Wednesday, September 18. At 7 p.m. we will gather at the front of the sanctuary for a Taizé service. Perhaps you have heard about Taizé. It’s a community of about 100 brothers who live in a monestery by that name in Burgundy, France. It was founded in 1954 by Brother Roger. Taizé worship uses a comfortable space (pillows and chairs), soft music, candlelight, icons, repetitive chant, and guess what—silence to create an atmosphere of meditation wherein we can experience the presence of God.
Our director of Praise Worship, Andy Wallace, made a pilgrimage to East Liberty Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh to experience a Taizé service which has been going on for nearly 30 years. He and his wife, Jeanne, were moved by the service. Andy came back really enthused to give this a try at Trinity. He has been working hard to make this first service very special.
Please come on September 18 at 7 p.m.
Don’t be afraid of the silence. Just be open to that still, small voice which may speak to you! “Be still and know that I am God!”
