Ash Wednesday Taize Service
Taizé services are characterized by quiet and candlelight, the repetition of melodious chants sung many times, a period of silence, and contemplative prayer. Let the songs sing themselves in you. Once you catch the tune, let yourself find the words -- in your heart or as you listen to your brothers and sisters as they sing. Let your spirit move along the path provided by rhythmic repetition, deeper and deeper into the stillness and beauty of God's presence. Ashes and blessing will be available for anyone who wishes.
More About Memorial Congregational Church
This church traces its roots back to 1640. Along the way, there were divisions and this group eventually became part of the United Church of Christ. The church is distinguished by placing affirmation of faith, rather than acceptance of a prescribed creed, at the heart of its membership requirement. An emphasis is placed on acceptance of all people, regardless of race, ethnic background, sexual orientation or station in life.
