Taizé taster

Please can I commend to you a great event as a taster for people thinking of going to Taizé as this weekend in Bristol will be run by brothers from the community.

Of course if you've been before it would also be something that would appeal.

This is the description of the weekend from Br Paolo:

Bristol, 11-12 March, “Who is my neighbour?” -- a weekend for young adults (18-25)

When Father Richard McKay arrived at St Nicholas church in Bristol, 9 years ago, his parishioners were mostly people over 60 who had lived in Bristol most of their lives. Today, people from over 50 countries come regularly to the Sunday morning eucharist and children fill the space around the altar.
This is an opportunity to meet and listen to people of many countries as they seek to make their home in inner-city Bristol. And we will ask ourselves “Who is my neighbour?”, as we read and reflect on Jesus’ story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10). One of the brothers of Taizé will help lead the weekend.

For all practical details, accommodation, etc. see the flier:

We hope to welcome many young people at this weekend who do not know Taizé. Please put up copies of the poster and give it to young adults who you think will be interested.

(For details of other meetings in the UK in Feb-Mar 2006.)

Also there's some great news... Taizé is sending some brothers to

Greenbelt 06, 25-28 August

"The organisers of the Greenbelt Festival have asked the community to lead times of prayer and workshops during the festival and one of the brothers will be there for the whole weekend. We are looking for musicians to help with the prayers. Please contact Br Paolo if you would like to help "

I'll be at Greenbelt... hope some of you guys will be too. I'm trying not to get too excited about it already!
