Taizé Services to be held on Schreiner Campus October 5  

Schreiner University Campus Ministry will be hosting monthly Taizé Services on the first Sunday of the month beginning this Sunday, Oct. 5th, at 6 p.m. in the chapel behind the Elaine B. Griffin Welcome Center on the Schreiner University Campus. A simple meal will follow the service. A love offering will be received for the meal and will go towards a scholarship fund for students travelling to Taizé in May 2009.

Taizé services are characterized by meditative singing, scripture reading, silence and prayer. They come to us out of the Taizé community in France, which was formed in the mid-1940s by Brother Roger of Taizé. Currently, more than 100,000 people a year travel to Taizé to experience a pattern of living that is ordered by worship three times a day, Bible study and service, with the invitation that each person will take the little piece of the gospel they have understood and live it in the world.

Other dates for the Schreiner University Campus Ministry services are November 2 and December 7. Services will resume in February.

For more information, contact the Rev. Gini Norris-Lane, campus minister at Schreiner, at or 830-792-7284.
