The Threshold

A Christian Community of Transformation

Home Prayer

Prayer in the style of Taizé

During the remainder of 2021, the Threshold will gather at the church for in-person prayer on the first Sunday of each month. The other Sundays, you are invited to join us here for a virtual online prayer.

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.

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.

Holy Spirit, you fill the universe with God’s love and you come close to each human being. You are the giver of life, and we would like to welcome you at every moment so that you may inspire what we think and say and do.
