taize-pine-ridge-2013-360There’s still a couple of weeks if you’re interested in signing up to go the Taize gathering on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in the Badland.

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.

Check out this video about the gathering: Video

  1. Wish I could come! I’ll be in Big Bend. Sounds like it is going to be great though. Also, “Food provided by the Lakota”. Yeah, that’s awesome.

  2. Is this an open invitation? Do you really want me tagging along on the trip?

  3. Can I guest blog for you?
