Sunrise 6:09: Just in time for the bells

It was raining fairly hard when the Dawn Joggers woke up around sunrise this morning. But, as in the American Midwest, just wait ten minutes. By the time they'd dressed and we're headed out on the "extra long route" to morning services at Taize, it had stopped and the sun was dramatically poking through - at least in two places. Living on a ridge top, they can often see the weather roll in from the west and move out to the east. But it is so localized that it can be pouring where they are yet they can see a roaring fire - well tended by a local farmer - in the not so far distance. This morning the weather held firm and the Taize bells chimed as they walked under them. Two brothers will be visiting this evening for supper...
