Taizé is a quiet candle-lit service of sung prayer, Scripture, and silence. You might like to be in a darkened environment with candles as you participate in this service. The sung prayer is intended to be non-anxious, non-directed singing. Several languages may be used, and when possible, instrumental variations may accompany the singing (humming). The sung prayer starts softly, builds, and ends softly, all without strict direction. In a Taizé service, no leader stands at the front; all worshipers face the cross. During the silences, you may read or ignore any words that appear on the screen. In Taizé, France, where this kind of worship began and is a thrice-daily practice, people sometimes come forward and kneel around the cross during the silences. You can do whatever practice suits you at home.
The meeting room will be open at 6:50. Note that your microphones will be muted and your video will not show.
