Definition of Taizé

- Candlelight and lanterns are traditional beacons of autumn and winter for many cultures—from Diwali to Christmas to Hanukkah—as communities usher in longer nights. Taizé at the Stone Church is similar in that the Tuesday services bring light to the night with a roomful of candles.
