True friendship is
A twofold wish
In heights and depths to share
And when apart
They'll join their hearts
In thought and wish and prayer

Scarlet is one of our resident poets, and an artist and whistler. :)

Beautifully said, Scarlet.

I've been wondering how you are doing these days. How would you say that your time at Taizé changed you, if at all?

Thanks...

I wouldn't consider myself a whistler yet, but thanks to the book Adrian gave me, i can learn a little. Adrian calls himself a beginner, so than, what am i?

Kitty, my time in Taizé indeed did change me. Most of my experiences are beyond words though, which makes it hard for me to explain. But if you want to know, please give me some time to think of words to express some of it.

Shalom, Scarlet

Oh, I understand!

These things are very often like Dr. Who's spaceship. They are bigger on the inside than they are on the outside. Sometimes trying to put into words what has happened to us on the inside makes it seem so much smaller than it really was - if we can even find the words in the first place.

Words become such feeble tools at times.

But yes, I'd like to know. I am going through a time of disillusionment/disagreement with the church myself right now (at least the church in America). I would love to spend a week or so at Taizé.

:? Do you know how rare it is to find someone Stateside who's heard of the Tardis?

Sorry you're having such a tough time with the church right now, Kitty. And Scarlet, if you find the words, I'd like to hear them as well.

Watched it every week for years. :mrgreen: Tom Baker was the best Dr. Who.

Agreed! Tom Baker was the best!!!

I started watching it in 1970 so Jon Pertwee (the third Doctor) is the one I enjoyed the most. When Tom Baker took over I was already sailing around the world. I'm surprised the series made it to the US.

PBS ("educational")stations will sometimes run the series for a while. Late at night. When they think it won't get on the nerves of "normal" people. :mrgreen:

'Doctor Who' is the longest running sci-fi series in the world according to the Guinness Book of Records, and has even more episodes than 'Star Trek'. The device that Dr Who travelled through time in was a British police box that we used to have on the streets in the UK. They are not much bigger than a normal phone box (booth) but the one the Dr Who travelled in, his tardis, was much much bigger when you stepped inside.

The series was intended to be educational. When it travelled back in time the focus was on history and when the Doctor travelled into the future it was supposed to teach something about science but I think the viewers just watched it for entertainment.

The Daleks were malicious robotic beasties.

I'm sorry Scarlet, my comment about Dr. Who's spaceship totally hijacked your lovely thread!

The POINT was that, just like the Tardis which was an ordinary phone booth on the outside but a huge spaceship on the inside, the significance of the work and transformation and revelation and healing and everything else the Lord does inside us connot really be conveyed in words. It seems to get smaller on the "outside."

You try to explain it to someone and they just will not get it completely until they step "inside" and the Lord does some marvelous transformation within them as well.

I remember once a church I was going to sent the ladies off on a retreat. Just us. The Lord did such a deep work there! The first Sunday we were back the pastor eagerly asked us for testimonies, and waited. No one had anything to say. Now you tell me that's not supernatural! A room half filled with ladies and not one had a thing to say. For the same reason Scarlet mentioned. So, Scarlet, I know that feeling, too. I'm so glad God did a work like that in your heart.

Actually not a phone booth but what we used to call a 'police box'. They did have a phone inside that was connected directly to the police station but the police used them to keep papers and things as well that they might need when they were out on the beat. Very useful in the rain as well. The streets were not as well lit as today and at night they were useful for the police to use to write in. All police carried keys for them. They were about twice the size of a regular telephone box (booth for Americans). Many of them had a phone on the outside that was connected to the police station for members of the public to use in an emergency.

Now we live in an age of police cars, radios and mobile phones. I thing the police boxes were phased out in the mid 70s. I think Les might know more about this.
