Taizé Service of Prayer and Healing March, 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.  This particular Taizé service makes use of the labyrinth in our Fourth Floor Theatre, knowing that walking is a way to unify the physical with praying in the sacred geometry of the labyrinth.  When one enters the labyrinth, one is gaining entrance to communion with God.  In the middle of the service Sally instructs us in the realization of our own sacred space and how we meet God there.    (NOTE: A pdf of the program containing all of the music, readings, and guidance is available below to view or download.)
