What is Taizé?

Someone recently asked me if I knew what a Taizé service is. I didn’t, so I thought I’d see what I could find. At FaithLinks, there is a brief description of it. The roots of this tradition are in France, where it was established during the second World War. It’s an ecumenical Christian prayer tradition that focuses on meditation, much like Centering Prayer.

More information can be found at the Taizé site in France. Music for a Taizé service can be found at GIA Publications. For those living in Austin, you can learn about services by joining Taizé-Austin at Yahoo.
