He is risen!
Thank you to all who participated in this very meaningful and timely book discussion. I am personally touched by the breadth and depth of the comments.
It is quite amazing, as some have pointed out, just how applicable In the Name of Jesus is today, nearly thirty years after being published.
I trust the book our Lent discussion has been a blessing to each and every one of you.
On behalf of everyone – all of our active participants as well as you silent, yet appreciative, lurkers – I wish to extend very special thanks to Ray Glennon for his gracious and faithful leadership. These book discussions wouldn’t happen without Ray and his co-facilitator Brynn Lawrence (hopefully, Brynn will be back with us for the Advent book beginning in November.)
I want to take a moment to remind you there will be two new publications in 2016 that I am sure you will enjoy. On May 10, HarperCollins is releasing The Spiritual Life, a compilation of eight of Henri Nouwen’s most significant works. You can pre-order the book here. It’ll make for wonderful summer reading!
And later this year a brand new publication titled Love, Henri (edited by our own Gabrielle Earnshaw!) will hit bookstore shelves. Henri was a prodigious letter writer. His letters were often deeply personal and pastoral. This new publication contains over 300 of Henri’s letters to friends and colleagues, all remarkably rich with spiritual insights and directions. Look for Love, Henri later this year.
Please consider joining us from June 9—11 for Way of the Heart, our first Henri Nouwen conference in 10 years! To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Henri’s death – and to celebrate his life and legacy, Way of the Heart is bringing together a host of incredible speakers and session leaders. What a great way to begin your summer. Details are available on our website.
We look forward to having you join us in November for the Advent book discussion. We’ll be announcing the book well in advance, so please check our website frequently.
He is risen, indeed!
Blessings & peace,
