Our next Meditation Service with music from Taizé, France and the Iona Community, Scotland will be Wednesday, July 18 at 6:30 pm. Deacon Peggy Day will be our worship leader for this service. Taizé and Iona Worship is an Ecumenical Service in which meditative prayer, scripture, and Songs of Taizé and Songs from Iona written by John L. Bell are used in a relaxed atmosphere where the worshiper will easily become comfortable with the music, prayers, quiet reflection, and community.
A quote from Brother Roger, founder of Taize community:
“From the depths of the human condition a secret aspiration rises up. Caught in the anonymous rhythms of schedules and timetables, men and women of today are implicitly thirsting for an essential reality, for an inner life. Nothing is more conducive to a communion with the living God than a meditative common prayer with, as its high point, singing that never ends and that continues in the silence of one’s heart when one is along again.”
