Desert Rose


DESERT ROSE

This Blog site is for two purposes.
It is here that I will be able to give updates on upcoming Taize Services in the Fraser Valley of B.C. Canada or other reflective/prayerful services that offer Sacred Space.

This space will also be used to share a bit about what I'm learning on this great spiritual journey!

Taize prayer is marked by a spirit of contemplation, the repeated singing of simple refrains and of silence. Scriptures and prayers are chosen for the church season we are in, connecting us to a rich heritage of Christian worship.

Prayer for 2006:

Let me fly
into the arms of God
as a child full of trust
Leaping off the edge of knowing
without a backward glance
Looking straight
ahead to
the one who loves me best
And who joyously
calls out my name
C.H.

Thanks, Cathy, for preparing a way for the Lord that many of us can follow with you into His presence with silence, singing, and prayers both in solitude & together.
May His Light that is on these ministries be a beacon to many.
With you,
Lorie
