Program January – Newsletter: Become Creators of Peace

Dear friends, I send you a message from the Taizé European Meeting in Strasbourg. It is a veryTaize strasbourg friendly gathering with such a crowd of young people. Our group gather in our Dominican priory church in the mornings together with more than a hundred other from Spain, France, Hungury, Poland, Romania and other countries. Br Alois, the prior of Taizé, said in his opening meditation on Saturday evening:
“Create and consolidate a community of friendship: istn’t that the contribution that the Christians can give for the future of our communities? There are so many proplems to affront. Unemployment, poverty, inegalities between rich and pour within our countries and between the countries, and, related to that, the degradation of our environment. Many young people aspire towards an other economic organisation. Can we look for answers to these challenges without creating bonds of friendship? Christ, through his Holy Spirit, invites us to leave behind the spirit of rivalry that lead to opposition, injustices, and instead become creators of friendship, constructors of peace.”
Creators of friendship, constructors of peace? Let’s start now! Let’s be inventive, each one of us! I went to a seminary on ecology yesterday. They showed very concrete exemples. Like two women is an English city who started to plant seeds in green areas. People could then come and pick the vegetables – on condition that they took seeds form them and planted. TOday it’s a city full of vegetables for everyone- and the rate of crime went down with 20%. People started to talk to each other, and got friends! We have to be concrete!
Here’s the program for January. Note that in February we have our FilmDays again February 20th to 22nd. In January  I’m in Lund for the Taizé prayer Jan 7th and Mass and lunch the 8th. See you.
Happy 2014 to all of you.
yours br Björn

  1. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be
    on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people
    think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
    top as well as defined out the whole thing without having
    side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

  2. Very nice blog post. I definitely appreciate this website.
    Stick with it!
