Taizé Service of Prayer and Healing January 2023

Speakers:Sally Ahner
Topics:Taizé Service of Prayer and Healing

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, quieting the mind and listening for God.  As she has for years, Sally Ahner introduces the service and leads it.  The reading for the service is part of Psalm 45, a modern rendering by Nan Merrill.  Much of the service is the singing of traditional Taizé chants, but there are also periods of silence for meditation and a segment for healing.     (NOTE: A pdf of the program containing all of the music, readings, and guidance is available below to view or download.)
