    I am looking forward to this Advent adventure. I first discovered Henri Nouwen’s books thru the Cokesbury bookstore so many years ago I don’t remember when. I’ve not participated in a blog or on line book discussion but willing to learn. I am a recently retired nurse. I worked in nursing homes and assisted living for the past 34 years and have learned so much from their wisdom and life experiences. They have been a blessing. I live in the St. Louis area.

    I am looking forward to this Advent adventure. Have read Henri Nouwen for so many years, having been introduced to his works through Cokesbury bookstore. I am a retired nurse who worked in nursing homes and assisted living for many years. Also a Stephen Minister. Meeting people in challenging times in their lives has been a blessing and their insights about life have helped to form me. I live in the St. Louis, Mo area.

  3. Jerry says:

    I am a mother of a small child and a musician.

    I’m looking forward to learning more about myself.

    I have come to realize that I will be happier when I approach God without my own expectation, accepting and enjoying what He creatively supplies in each moment. I pray that this discussion can feed my soul in reflection of advent, and I pray for open hands and an open heart.

    I look forward to joining another Advent Retreat. It has been a while since I have had time to devote to reflection during this season.

  7. Jean Chirdon says:

    Thank you for making this retreat available for all. There are those of us who can no longer attend retreats with cost being a significant factor. Your generosity in providing this opportunity is greatly appreciated.

    “May the Lord bless and keep us” all on this Advent journey!

  9. Roxanna Hamaku says:

    How does someone join in a book discussion? I am not knowledgeable on computer and how all the new technology works but I am very interested in joining the discussion. I have been touch, healed and inspired by Heni Nouwen’s words. Thank you

    • Brynn Lawrence says:

      Hi Roxanna,

      Welcome! To participate is actually very simple. You need to order your copy of the book ( or buy one in your local bookstore). Then come back to this site (the home page) on November 23rd. We will guide you from there!

      Looking forward to connecting with you through this discussion.
