What is Taizé?

 

Taizé is the style of Christian worship practiced by the ecumenical Taizé community in France, characterized by the repetitive singing of simple harmonized tunes, interspersed with readings, prayers, and periods of silence.

 

One of our congregations, Hope Lutheran Church in Forest Hills, has a long tradition of offering this meaningful, contemplative type of worship service monthly. Also, in the past PLUM has had a Taizé joint worship service.

 

Whether you are someone who is new to Taizé, or someone who already appreciates this beautiful way to connect to God, community and self, please consider joining us. All are welcome!
