Taize Riga

15,000 young people praying together for peace and trust, that’s what happened in Riga, Latvia, during the last days of 2016 and into the new year 2017.
Young people, 18-35 years came from “all corners” of the earth to participate in the ecumenical Taizé “pilgrimage of trust” a real pilgrimage of trust. Together we have met, talked and prayed. We have come to know the world right here, right now. Together we have discovered, perhaps rediscovered that we experience the same issues, sharing the same life and the same wishes – peace between us and between nations. We worry about the same things, we enjoy the same things, wherever we are in the world, in whichever church family we may belong to – we are a creation, a creation that God controls. We want to walk in the way of trust, we want to be right with God, we want to share peace and peace with each other and we want to laugh and sing … as that is the kingdom of God
“The kingdom of God is justice and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit”
Thank you, Lord for calling us to join forces for the pilgrimage of trust.
