Taizé for August: Uniting Divided Communities


Thursday, August 5, 2021 - 19:00


Description: Taizé for August: Uniting Divided Communities Aug. 5, 7-8 p.m.In-person and live-streamedRegistration Is Required. Register to get details about the live stream. Our mission at the Renewal Center is to be a safe and sacred place, offering healing and hope, renewal and reconciliation for all people. We invite you into our space for that purpose both in person and by live stream. We gather in August to pray for unity in this time of division and discord in our church, country and world. By being present on Aug. 5, we are not just praying for unity, but are also committing ourselves to work toward reconciliation and peace with one another. As disciples of Christ, we are each commissioned to function as a peacemaker within our communities. This means learning to listen well, disagree respectfully and respond with charity and love. This does not mean simply agreeing with one another or “keeping the peace” to avoid conflict. As we confront the cracks in our community, may we remain rooted in our call to live the Christian life. The event will be live-streamed for our many friends who cannot be with us physically. What is Taizé? Taizé Prayer comes from an ecumenical, monastic community in France and has spread to numerous spots around the world. The prayer service uses simple chant melodies followed by quieting moments of silence that foster a meditative atmosphere. From the depths of the human condition, a secret aspiration rises up. Today many are thirsting for the essential reality: an inner life, signs of the Invisible. Nothing is more conducive to communion with the living God than meditative common prayer. When the mystery of God becomes tangible through the simple beauty of symbols, when it is not smothered by too many words, then a common prayer awakens us to heaven’s joy on earth.
