The Anointing of Jesus: A Taize Worship Service of Scripture, Prayer and Anointing
Taizé is a meditative prayer service that incorporates simple, repetitive songs and words, scripture readings, and periods of silence in a setting of peace and soft light that fosters communion with God. Through Taizé, participants can worship in a community setting, yet remain open to the voice of God and discover the prayer within themselves.
