Taizé

I play the guitar for the monthly service on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at the Charlottesville Mennonite Church. (come join us at 8pm!) Last nights' service was one of the best ever. Did me a lot of good!

How to describe Taize? It is so beautiful and peaceful.  There is a lot of silence as well as a lot of lovely music. We sit in candlelight. Some of the best singing goes on here.  We have also guitar (me), piano, flute, recorder as accompaniment instruments.

To me it is such a healing balm to go and bask in the quietude in community. Next month (Jan) will make my one year anniversary since I've been going. I look forward to each month.

Here's a photo of the song book we use.
