Happy New Year and Thank You!

Many thanks to Brynn, Ray and this beautiful and compassionate community of readers and seekers for this past Advent journey. I have been deeply touched by the sharing and caring of this community during our reflection on A Spirituality of Living and A Spirituality of Homecoming. Merton once said, “There is no way of telling people that they are all walking around shining like the sun.” I hope you believe that you are ‘shining like the sun’ – that is how I think of all of you!

We are so blessed to have the gentle and wise leadership of Brynn Lawrence and Ray Glennon and it is with deep gratitude that we welcome them back for our Lenten discussion. Consideration of book titles is underway. If you have a suggestion, please contact us at: admin@henrinouwen.org.

May you have a healthy and prayerful new year!

    Thank you for this site! Just a word on the freeing experience of forgiveness! I went thru a seminar twice of 12 week sessions to find a whole new life in Christ! This is after salvation and practicing ministry as a minister for nine years as a 42 year old!

    There are moments where we stand in the dessert dry and parched; and wondering why God seems so far off. Yes, then comes God’s Spirit silently dwelling within our spirit, calling our for us to come and be with Him. That I must let go of what I am hanging onto. After searching deeply, and praying I say “Okay, Lord, I know you are in control. I give it all to you”….peace then ensues and I am free of life’s burden.
    Our Lord is our treasure – without Him we are lost.
