Taize, the ecumenical monastery in France founded after WW II.
Each week throughout the year thousands of young people from around the world gather at Taize for a week of community and prayer.
Phyllis Tickle argues that in the future Taize will be credited as one of the precipitating movements of Emergence Christianity.
I believe her.
Because my previous visits to Taize have proven to have an enormous impact on my own spiritual development and how I understand the nature of the church.
The Taize gathering at Pine Ridge will be over Memorial Day weekend. I plan on going with a few others, and I will be guest-blogging for Tony Jones about my experiences there.
