Discernment by Henri Nouwen
One of the great writers of the spiritual life and pastoral care in the last part of the 20th Century was Father Henri Nouwen (1932-1996). He taught at the universities of Harvard, Yale, and Notre Dame before becoming the senior pastor of L’Arche Daybreak in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, a community where men and women with intellectual disabilities and their assistants create a home for one another.
Fr. Nouwen spoke at my seminary, Gordon-Conwell in the winter of 1984, where I had to opportunity to meet him. He always had simple but deep insights into the spiritual life. Since his death in 1996, his writings, both published and not published are part of the Henri Nouwen Trust. This book on spiritual discernment is based on lectures he gave, and unpublished writings, put together by Michael J. Christianson and Rebecca Laird.
This book deals with the common question, what is God calling me to do? Please join our Wednesday book group at 1 pm on Wednesdays, as we discuss Fr. Nouwen’s insights on what it is to discern what God is calling us to do and be.
Books are available for purchase in the church office for $13. Come join us!
