Walk with us this Lent as we reflect on Henri Nouwen’s HEART SPEAKS TO HEART and MAKING ALL THINGS NEW

We begin our Lenten journey together on March 5th and we are very pleased to announce that Brynn Lawrence will return as our facilitator! For those of you who don’t know Brynn, here is a brief bio:

BRYNN LAWRENCE is a life coach and experienced group facilitator. Throughout the Lenten book discussion she will work to create a safe and welcoming space that provides the opportunity for participants to reflect on the readings, and to share thoughts and encouragement with others. Brynn has come to know and trust Henri’s written word through her part-time position as project coordinator for the Nouwen Archive Letter Project. Brynn is also a Strategic Intervention Life Coach, and the founder of Abundant Life Coaching International. If you have any questions for Brynn, please contact her directly at nouwen.letters@utoronto.ca or through her website.

How do you participate in this reflection? Simply return to this blog on March 5th to read Brynn’s first post; there is no need to register. Everyone is welcome at any time during our six weekBookcover_MATN2014105x156 journey, to participate in any way that is nurturing for them. If you want to read along with us but not post your thoughts, that is just fine. You may prefer to keep a journal of your own during this time. For those who enjoy posting their thoughts and responding to others in the group, we look forward to hearing from you. Regardless of how you participate in this Lenten reflection, please know that you are a part of a compassionate and thoughtful community. The level of sharing and caring that took place within our Advent reflection community was beautiful and so life-giving and we hope you are looking forward to the Lenten reflection as much as we are!
