Welcoming Winter

Although the daylight hours will be increasing, the winter season has just begun. Warm yourselves in the glow of candle light and the reflective, meditative tradition of prayerful song, in the spirit of Taize. Influenced by his grandmother’s tales of helping refugees during the First World War, Brother Roger developed the Taize community of France around his own commitment to sheltering political refugees, including Jews fleeing Nazi persecution. Today, faith communities around the world, including many Unitarian Universalist congregations, include Taize services as a regular part of their worship life.
