In the Spirit of Taizé is an ecumenical form of prayer modeled after the Taizé community (an ecumenical Christian monastic community of brothers) founded in the 1940s by Br. Roger in Taizé, France. The purpose of the prayer is to foster reconciliation and peace among all people. Christians of all traditions share in this ecumenical prayer. The simple service consists of song (using the simple chants of the Taizé community), scripture, and an extended period of silence for meditation concluding with prayers for the world.
