NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 09
We´re all getting back again after summer break, those of us who didn´t stay in Lund. And those who saw the end of their stay here, going back to their countries like Anon to Indonesia, Alix to France, Lenka to Slovakia and Ruta to Lituania. Let´s thank them and others for their presence among us the last year.
The diversity of our group, with people from all continents is really catholic in the best sense, but also a challenge: it´s not always easy to connect with people different from ourselves, it demands openness and interest. It can also demand a certain insistence from us, seeing the difference beneath the visual aspect of the other, and reflecting about it, getting a way to find a key to the others. Our faith in Christ, sharing it together can be such a key. We have all to relate to the same stories of the Scriptures, and the same life of Jesus, but we all do if from the perspective of our background and personallity. This can be very enriching and I hope we´ll have many good occasions of sharing life this year, too. I would also like you to pay an interest to the new-comers and invite them into your own life.
In November there will be a great Taizégathering in Lund the weekend 13th-15th. There will be prayers in the big cathedral of Lund and various meetings and seminares. Brother Matthew from Taizé will also participate.We´ll see if we can invite other young catholic people from the south of Sweden to come here. Do you have any ideas? Bring them to our group, and to Maria, Joakim and Evelina who participate in the organization. Look for info at www.taizelund09.wordpress.com and mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. And bookmark already now this weekend in November.
We have now some responsibles for our various gatherings. Get in touch with them for proposals and participation:
Wednesday lunches: Evelina and Judy
Info and social activities: Stefano
The blog: Joakim
We have contacts with an association working with immigrant youth in Lund, TAMAM. Volunteering with them can be a good way of deepening faith. Interested? Come to their introduction meeting on Sep 8th (look in the calender). I intend to go myself- tell me and we go together.
yours, brother Björn
