One does not reform a body, however small, by the threat of schism. It is always from within and with infinite care that one brings new life where it is needed. Only then is confrontation constructive. Every schism which, at the time, seems to relieve tension, is in reality an impoverishment. It means a refusal to take the further steps which are essential to a life in God which will be fully responsible and united.
— Brother Roger of Taizé in “The Power of the Provisional” pg 43
