See you in a week!

I am off to Taize in France tomorrow  (I am sure there are many familiar with Taize chant) where I will be staying and praying with the community for the week, camping with others. I think it might involve a fair old bit of singing as well as washing up and earning our keep. I have never been there before and I am excited about it. I will be driving with four others so won't arrive till Sunday morning. I have to say I am not the best camper in the world but for peace and prayer and experience I will try my best. I invested in a pink rain coat for the occasion.  If you want to read more about Taize you can do so here.

Please know that you will all be very much in my prayers and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you.

Bless the Lord my soul
Bless His holy name - hope you have a great time and that you will return refreshed and renewed in the Spirit with your heart full of song.

I have only ever been to one Taize evening as it has only recently been introduced to our parish, but I do remember a great sense of Spirit- presence and peacefulness.
