Prayer in the style of Taizé – April 11, 2021


During this time of national sheltering and because your health and safety are important to us, until further notice the Threshold will not gather at the church on Sundays. On Sunday, April 11 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.


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.
