Prayer in the style of Taizé – June 13, 2021


During the remainder of 2021, the Threshold will gather at the church for in-person prayer on the first Sunday of each month. The other Sundays, you are invited to join us here for a virtual online prayer.


On Sunday, June 13 at 5pm, you are invited to pray from home, following this order of service and using the audio and video clips to sing in a Taize style.


Prayer in the Style of The Taizé Community
The Threshold - Denver, CO

With audio clips from the community in France and video clips of Brad singing selected songs with friends at the Peace Cathedral in Tbilisi, The Republic of Georgia.


At the Taize community in France, participants sing in many languages during the week-long program. At the Threshold, we continue that globally-focused tradition. You may want to print this order of service to follow the English words for the songs in other languages.

Christ Jesus, like the sower who went out to sow, you invite us in our turn to come out of ourselves, to dare to meet others, and to discover your presence, which is sometimes hidden, in the world. Yes, you send your Church out, towards out brothers and sisters in humanity.
