A special program before “Together” at Taizé

From September 24-28, just before the event “Together – A Gathering of the People of God,” a special program of reflection on the Church will be offered at Taizé for young adults from 18 to 35 years old.

The theme will be:

The Church throughout the world: journeying with others and widening our friendship

Among the subjects covered in the biblical introductions :

1. "Jesus announced the Kingdom of God and it was the Church that came" (Alfred Loisy): the Church - a let down or a promising beginning?

2. "There is no longer Jew or Greek" (Saint Paul): founded on love of enemies, what can the Church contribute to peace on earth?

3. "The Church, our mother" (Easter liturgy): do we belong to the Church by choice, or is it like a large family into which we are born?

4. "The Church is only Church when it is there for others" (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
