Prayer in the style of Taizé - The Easter Season, 2020

During this time of national sheltering and because your health is important to us, until further notice the Threshold will not gather at the church on Sundays. On Sunday, May 24 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. Even though we cannot see each other, through our intent we can be with each other in community.
