Omaha First UMC - Taize Prayer Services

On the first Saturday of each month, First UMC hosts a community Taizé Prayer service at 5:00 p.m. in Mead Chapel

Taizé prayer services are inspired by the Taizé ecumenical monastic community in France where people – young and old – come to pray, to be silent, to listen, to be simple, to be faithful. They come seeking space in which to be with God. The community was founded by Brother Roger Schutz during the Second World War. 

Perhaps the most distinctive character in the service is the music, simple meditative songs with few words that are repeated again and again.  This allows the words to penetrate deeply as a way of listening to the Divine Presence.  The service also includes short readings, spoken prayers, a period of silence and the use of candles adding to the meditative aspect of the service. 

The service, about 40 minutes in length.  All are welcome.
