It was a wonderful experience to attend the Taize prayer organized by a brother from Taize community. Apart from the various distractions (which I would discuss after later) it was really nice.
The short introduction about the Taize community which he gave prior to the prayer was really insightful. One thing that caught my attention was about the number of young people who are flocking for the prayer to the community of Taize or to the various places in which this prayer is conducted.
The prayer is a simplified version of the age old traditional prayer of the church, which has the psalms, scripture reading and intercessions. However the continued repletion of the hymns really brings meaning to the words.
