Nyberg’s Bus Travel is a company that amongst other things arrange trips by bus to a place called Taizé in the south of France, that is every summer the meeting place of thousands and thousands of people, many young, from around the world. They come together to sing and many share a strong religious belief. I have neither travelled with Nyberg’s or actually been to Taizé. Friends of mine describe a trip there as an extra-ordinary experience and on the homepage of Nyberg’s we can read the following lines:

The word trust is a key word in Taizé. The gatherings that are lead by brothers from around the world lead are a pilgrimages for trust on earth. The word trust is maybe one the most humble, everyday words that exists and at the same time one of most necessary..”

(Nyberg’s Bus Travel)

So, what do you really mean the next time you say to someone “I trust you”? Some clever person once said “without a relation, no communication”. I would like to add “without trust, no relation”, at least not one where we have faith in that the good will return after sometimes disappearing around the corner.
