A very full week in Taizé

Taizé - adult groupWe’ve now had three full days in Taizé, and have settled in to the routines of prayer three times a day, shared meals and discussion groups. Time has flown by!

The ‘adults’ in the group (Taizé language for those over 30 years of age) have been studying the work of Luke, with excellent multi-lingual introductions given by Brother Emile.

Yesterday a workshop was given by Brother Stephen (whose grew up near Carlisle) on the question of “what can art tell us about love?” Later this afternoon we have the possibility to watch and listen to Rachmaninov’s 2nd piano concerto, with the help of Vivaldi – whatever that means – in the context of the framing question of “What is it that can make music so beautiful?”

Those staying in tents were aware of yet more rain last night – it seems there has been more than usual for this time of year – but after a cool start to the day it’s now sunny and warm.
