Prayer in the style of Taizé – January 10, 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, January 10 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.

Unison Prayer  (Speak these words by Brother Alois of Taize)


Christ Jesus, as the sinners did, you went down into the waters of the river Jordan to be baptized by John. Your humility enables us to perceive God’s love. Step by step you let yourself be guided by the Holy Spirit, whom you also send into our hearts, and who renews our joy at being children of God.

A Song         Nunc dimittis


Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine, Domine,
Secundum verbum tuum in pace.

Let your servant now go in peace, O Lord
now go in peace according to Your Word
