The mission of The Sophia Center for Spirituality is to serve as a resource for all people and faith communities seeking to deepen their relationship with God. Christian and ecumenical in orientation and founded on the principles of openness and hospitality, the center is a place of welcome for all people seeking support on their spiritual journey. Of special note will be programs based on the contemplative dimensions of Christianity rooted in the traditions of both East and West. The center will offer a diverse menu of services in the areas of faith and spirituality for residents of the Southern Tier and central New York.
Why I enjoy Taizé
Marge Mangan is one of the most faithful participants at our monthly Taizé services and had the following to say in answer to a question about why she keeps coming back.
“I like the format with the time for reflection and the occasional question that you ask as a prompt after a reading. It’s good to have Scripture and the five to ten minutes of silence that follows each time helps the meaning to go deeper in us. Personal, private time for reflection is enhanced by being in a group. And chanting…there’s something to be said for that! Even if we don’t have great voices we can sing along with the monks at Taize (on CD) or when we have a live musician because the chants are simple and provide repeated prayers that are uplifting."
Join us for Taizé on Sunday, Sept. 23 at 6 p.m. at The Sophia Center.
Thank you ... to all who continue to donate to us during our annual campaign.
