Taize’ Ash Wednesday Worship Service, March 1, 2017

 

The Congregational Church of North Barnstead (CCNB) cordially invites the public to attend a Taize’ Ash Wednesday Worship Service, March 1 at 7:00 p.m.

 

Taize’ is an informal, ecumenical prayer service with a focus on reconciliation, peace, and social justice. Comprised of prayers, sacred silence, Scripture readings and songs, its underlying aim is for those gathered to enter together into the mystery of God’s presence. The songs are short, containing words from the Psalms or other Scripture.

 

Sung communally and repetitively, they become a unifying prayer and engender inner stillness and peace. For this service, a special ritual of “Ashes, Forgiveness and Light” will lead attendees into the Lenten season.

 

Taize’ worship began 76 years ago in Taize’, a small village in the Burgundy region of France. It has spread world-wide by people seeking to promote peace and reconciliation where they live and work. Each year, Taize’ attracts over 100,000 people.

 

This peaceful service is in candlelight and lasts 45 minutes. CCNB, a “year round” church built in 1820, is at 504 North Barnstead Road. Please come and join in as we begin the season of Lent. All are welcome!
