Celebrate Lent at Taize service

A Taize Prayer Service is planned at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 11, at Peach Lutheran Church.
Taize is a prayer service of quiet meditation, reflection, scripture and prayers, spoken and sung.  The Taize — pronounced teh-ZAY — tradition began in 1940 in an ecumenical monastic community in the French village of Taize. The music is a distinctive part of the service, written to allow for participation by a multi-lingual congregation without hymnals. The hymns are brief, simple and repeated many times in order that the words may descend from our lips to our hearts.
