Brothers of Taize Pilgrimage of Trust Comes to DFW in April 2014

February 12, 2014

The Brothers of Taize are coming to Texas in April as part of their on-going Pilgrimage of Trust outreach to young adults everywhere. They will visit the Austin, DFW and Houston areas during the Texas leg of the pilgrimage. The Dallas–Fort Worth gathering will be at White's Chapel UMC April 4-6.
 
The Pilgrimage of Trust is designed specifically for young adults age 18 – 35, as well as those who lead young adult groups. Registration for all of the sessions, including three meals is $45. There are also times of prayer that are open to the public and for people of all ages. Brothers Emmanuel, Emile and John will lead four Taize prayer meetings, one on Friday night and three on Saturday. They will also lead small groups and Bible studies, replicating the schedule of a day at Taize. The entire schedule and logistical details are all located at missionalwisdom.com/events
 
Upon learning of the Brothers of Taize plans to visit the area, Bishop Lowry was quite excited for this opportunity for the conference young adults. “Taize is a powerful spirit-filled point of engagement for young people in leadership development,” Bishop Lowry said. “I can’t recommend this event strongly enough and pray that as many of our young adults and young adult leadership as possible can attend.”
