This service is patterned after worship in the ecumenical community of Taizé, France. Taizé worship is designed for contemplative prayer through scripture, song, and silence. Its tempo encourages us to break away from the hurried sense of our busy lives and breathe in the presence of Christ and community.

Now, as you leave this place,
May the living Lord go with you.
May he go behind you, to encourage you;
Beside you, to befriend you in obedient ministry;
Above you, to watch over you;
Beneath you, to lift you from your sorrows;
Within you, to give you the gifts of faith
and hope and love;
And always before you, to show you the way. Amen.
