The Church of
Reconciliation in Taizé by night!
A joke? Well, not altogether!
This picture is the result of co-operation
between people from two continents and one subcontinent.
We had spotted that the full moon was rising behind the church as we gathered for Evening
Prayer. Even more beautiful was the fact that it was going to rise behind one of the
minarets on the church... The prospect of a photograph of the cross on the minaret
silhouetted against the full moon was irresistible - and so we -with young people from
Kenya and from India - balanced precariously on the wall near the church discussing the
possibility of the pictures coming out...
Watching the rising of the moon as the bells rang out calling people to prayer was
an eternal moment...
And, had we had a better camera, the picture would have been superb!
