How Taize changed the church

Steve Tomkins, Church historian, writes at the BBC on various influences of Brother Roger Schutz and Taize.
Another characteristic of Taize is stretches of silence. A prayer service may have a ten-minute silence in the middle. The brothers explain the reason for this: "If with a childlike trust we let Christ pray silently within us, then one day we shall discover that the depths of our being are inhabited by a Presence."
