Taizé Service of Prayer and Healing August, 2022

Speakers:Sally Ahner

The Taizé Service of Prayer and Healing is a different kind of worship service. Contemplative in nature, it is one of the ways to get in touch with one’s mystical self in the company of others with a similar intent.  As she has for years, Sally Ahner introduces the service and leads it.  Occasionally, as is so today, the Taizé Service is set at the labyrinth, where participants are encouraged to wend their way along the paths while meditating.  The reading for today is the very familiar story of Jesus healing the crippled woman in the synagogue and then being confronted by the synagogue leader for healing on the Sabbath (Luke 13.10-17).  A pdf of the program containing all of the music is available below to view or download.
