Taizé Prayer for Easter

April 2020
We invite you to join us in this special Taizé prayer for the Easter season. Taizé is a quiet, meditative prayer sung in common. The songs are short phrases that we sing repeatedly so that the words may enter our hearts. The songs may be sung in many different languages, reminding us that the Gospel is for all the world and we are all God’s people. Taizé prayer also includes a short reading, prayers of intercession (Kyrie Eleison – Lord, Have Mercy), and an opportunity to adore the cross. Prayer ends in silence, and we go out to love and be of service: Taizé prayer is offered for the whole world.

We are startled to encounter empty store shelves and even online shops closed or empty of certain supplies. We may find ourselves looking with suspicion at those around us when we hear a slight cough or sniffle.

Reflection on John 14:1-12

May 2020
This scripture passage, John 14:1-12, gives us a lot of food for thought. We have one of the “I am” statements so familiar in John’s Gospel. We have the disciples trying to process everything Jesus is telling them—and Jesus is teaching the disciples directly, no parables this time (although some say the “I am” statements…
