The Taizé service is marked by its depth and by its simplicity. Time is suspended in a Taizé service. Silence is a central part of this service and is a gift to those leading busy, hectic lives. It provides an opportunity to commune with God through the heart and bring a measure of peace to one’s mind and spirit. The service consists of singing with periods of silent meditation, prayers of intercession, and readings from the Psalms and Gospels. The songs are not meant to be sung as hymns, but rather as a series of prayers. They are repeated many times over, transforming themselves into melodic chants, with the repetitiveness allowing the songs to become prayers of the heart.
