Announcing the Nouwen Book Discussion for Advent 2017

We are delighted to announce that we will continue our discussion of Henri Nouwen’s Love, Henri for the Advent 2017 Book Discussion.

Love, Henri is a collection of more than 200 personal letters Henri sent to friends, colleagues, and complete strangers who had written to him asking for his counsel and spiritual advice.  Henri was a natural spiritual companion to everyone with whom he engaged. Countless people found him a valued spiritual guide through the struggles and triumphs of life. These letters show Henri as the man he really was — kind, wise, fragile, selfless, encouraging, vulnerable, honest and, most of all, human.

Edited by Gabrielle Earnshaw, longtime archivist for the Henri Nouwen Legacy Trust, Love, Henri is the perfect selection to read and discuss during the season of Advent. These letters overflow with Henri’s wisdom, understanding, and his unwavering belief in a loving, compassionate God who chose to become like us through the Incarnation.

Join us beginning Wednesday, November 22nd and journey with us through each week of Advent as we read and discuss this insightful collection of personal letters from Henri Nouwen.

Facilitated by Brynn Lawrence and Ray Glennon, this lively and thoughtful discussion is a wonderful way to ready your heart and mind to celebrate the Christmas season.

We do hope you can join us. A reading schedule will be posted prior to the commencement of the book discussion.
