Stronger Than Hate:
Interfaith Taizé Service for Unity and Peace

When?: Wednesday, November 14th, 2018 – 7:00pm to 8:15pm
Where?: Canterbury House
Within an interfaith framework marked by the three Abrahamic religions–Judaism, Christianity, and Islam–this service is a response to recent hate crimes and an opportunity for us to reflect on the lives that were lost as well as to manifest our strength in being united for peace. We will also celebrate the achievements of minorities and other marginalized groups, including Asian-Americans, African-Americans, Hispanics/Latinos/Latinxs, the LGBTQ+ community, Native-Americans, and Women.

Please join us as we sing Taizé songs (in Arabic, English, Hebrew, Japanese, Latin, and Spanish), pray, meditate, light candles, listen to readings and the sound of silence. The service will also feature a Native-American piece for solo recorder, an Afro-American spiritual, and “Peace I Leave with You” by American composer Amy Beach.

In addition, this Taizé service reaches out to our Safe House partners, First Nations Educational and Culture Center, Hillel (The Center for Jewish Life on campus), La Casa (Latino Culture center), and the LGBTQ+ Culture Center. 

After the service we will have cookies and tea.

There is free parking at the IU lots between Indiana and Dunn, just north of Kirkwood.

Learn more about Taizé and this event on our Facebook page!

 Trip to Terre Haute to Meet Eva Kor

When?: Saturday, December 1st, 2018 – 10:00am to 5:00pm
Where?: Meet at theCanterbury House
 Eva Mozes Kor is a survivor of the Holocaust and more specifically a survivor of the horrific experimentation in the research of human eugenics at the hand of Dr. Josef Mengele at Auschwitz. She established the CANDLES (“Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiments Survivors”) Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute, Indiana. Eva travels around the world to educate people about the atrocities of Nazi experimentation on identical twin children, as well as the power to heal one’s own wounds through forgiveness. She does this by simply telling her life story – growing up in Transylvania, being taken to Auschwitz at age ten, nearly dying by the hand of Mengele, escaping to Israel, her military carrier, marriage, raising a family in Terre Haute, the death of her twin sister, and eventually on to forgiveness and healing.

On Saturday, December 1, members of the Canterbury fellowship will carpool to Terre Haute, have lunch and then visit the CANDLES museum to hear Eva’s remarkable story of survival. We will leave Canterbury House at 10:00 a.m. and return by 5:00 p.m. The ministry will cover the admission fee to the museum. Individuals will be responsible for the cost of their lunch and any books or materials purchased at the museum bookstore.

Please contact Jody Hays ( with any questions or to reserve a seat in the carpool.
