A Community Called Taize'

A Story of Prayer, Worship and reconciliation
  • By Jason Brian Santos
$16.29
($18.00)
TaizA(c)--the word is strangely familiar to many throughout the contemporary church. Familiar, perhaps, because the chanted prayers of TaizA(c) are well practiced in churches throughout the world. Strangely, however, because so little is known about TaizA(c)--from its historic beginnings to how the word itself is pronounced. The worship of the TaizA(c) community, as it turns out, is best understood in the context of its greater mission. On the day Jason Brian Santos arrived in the TaizA(c) community its leader was brutally murdered before his eyes. Instead of making Santos want to leave, the way the community handled this tragedy made him long to stay and learn more about this group of people who could respond to such evil with grace and love. In this book he takes us on a tour of one of the world's first ecumenical monastic orders, from its monastic origins in the war-torn south of 1940s France to its emerging mission as a pilgrimage site and spiritual focal point for millions of young people throughout the world. In A Community Called TaizA(c) you'll meet the brothers of the order and the countless visitors and volunteers who have taken upon themselves a modest mission: pronouncing peace and reconciliation to the church and the world.
