I figured I'd start a discussion to give everyone a starting place for further questioning. For example, my name is Mitchell, I grew up in the south, and I'm a very..."interesting" sort of Christian…Continue

Please keep this in mind when commenting here. I'd like to keep this a clean house of learning, not a venue for picking fights.

I have been a great fan of the Taize community so this forum is an ideal site to expand my understanding because, brother, what I don't know would make a brand new world.

I was inspired to do so after realizing that the lovely roundtable discussions I used to have at coffee tables while in college no longer happened in my daily life.

I miss those discussions, and hope that this group will hold some of the same spirit.

Thank you for starting this group. This subject is something I am very interested in. I enjoy studying theology and learning about the world's religions, particularly the ecumenical aspects.
