As part of its Wednesday Night program during Lent, APC decided again this year to offer a worship service in the manner of the Taize community (February 24, 2010).
Seating was provided in a circle, to enhance the intimate and communal atmosphere. Everyone participated in the singing of the simple, repetitive songs that are the most essential element of a Taize service.
This year, the setting for the service was our "Old Sanctuary", which is now used as a theater for ACT 1 productions.
The dimmed lighting enhances the beauty of the glowing candles and facilitates the meditative mood.
L'Art provided the candles and crosses display that was used as a visual focal point. The display was set up with four sides so that regardless of one's position in the seating circle, crosses and candles were visible for contemplation.
