Taize音樂禱告和默想

今晚到教會去參加一個音樂禱告和默想,主題印在歌詞單頁上:結束槍擊暴力的惡性循環。

從維基百科找到Taize,中文翻成「泰澤」,原來是法國一個修道團體的禱告特色,很多基督教宗派都去向他們學習這種風格的禱告、讀經、和默想。每首歌都很短,不緊不慢地反覆唱個七、八遍,叫人不能不仔細回味歌詞的意義。歌曲之間有靜默的時間,和選讀一兩段經文。下面是一首泰澤詩歌的例子:



In God alone my soul can find rest and peace, in God my peace and joy.
Only in God y soul can find it's rest, find its rest and peace.
翻過來意思就是「我的靈唯獨在神裡找到安息、平安、和喜樂」。

今天詠唱的還有:
Don't be afraid, My love is stronger, My love is stronger than your fear.
Don't be afraid, My love is stronger, and I have promised, promised to be always here.

Nothing can trouble nothing can frighten.
Those who seek God shall never go wanting.
Nothing can trouble nothing can frighten.
May Your peace surround us.

...等等。對於美國當今社會中多次出現用槍來報復無辜警察的事件,消除懼怕和戒備很重要。作這些禱告會幫助人放下武器和信靠神。
