TaizeTaizé worship is an ecumenical sung and silent prayer service designed to achieve a contemplative space through songs, Scripture, prayer, silence and candlelight. The service is held in a space of soft lighting and candles, and you can perpare your space as you wish (see the suggestions below). The music, which is contemplative in nature, emphasizes simple one or two-line phrases usually from the Psalms, other passages of Scripture or from both Western and Eastern liturgy. Short chants are repeated over and over again to give the service a contemplative atmosphere. The service often includes a time of prayers and anointing. It provides a time at the end of the day and relax from the stress of the day’s activities.. It offers a time for worship and reflection, a time for calming the body and the mind. In the silence, God’s word can reach the hidden corners of our hearts, and the light of Christ can reach, heal, and transform us. 

To prepare a space to worship apart, yet together, have a candle or two (or more) to light; a cross, a piece of fabric, something from nature, a painting, a piece of pottery, or another object to visually define your “holy place.” Sing if you like, in whatever language you like, or be silent. Open your eyes and observe the worship environment, online from the sanctuary or in your home, or close your eyes and imagine yourself somewhere else.
