I know that many of you appreciate these Taize style services. I want to apologize to those of you who are not familiar with Taize, however, for not explaining what this term refers to. These contemplative liturgies are based on the worship of those written by the ecumenical monastic fraternity in Taizé, France. The St. Andrew’s includes singing of Taizé chant-like songs, silence, and communion. This kind of meditative liturgy helps us to breathe deeply and relax. To learn more about the Taizé service and the Taizé community, please visit their rich and informative website.
