Candles and music evoke an atmosphere of tranquil mystery during the Taizé-style prayer service, at 6:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday each month at PEACE Lutheran Church.

On the second Wednesday evening of each month, PEACE Lutheran Church sees candlelight filling the darkened Sanctuary. Chants of simple-yet-sacred words set to modern-yet-timeless music fill the room. Taizé Evening Prayer unfolds.

Taizé is a pattern of worship that developed in the Taizé monastic community of France in the 1940s. It started as a consciously ecumenical effort, inviting Protestants, Catholics and others on a spiritual path. Journeyers explore the spirituality that arises with prayer, Bible readings, chants, silence, unity, supplication and service.

This ancient way of seeking God holds remarkable meaning and appeal in our modern age, distracted as we are by noise and overwhelming social connection of every kind.
