The Spirituality of Vulnerability: The Agony and Ecstasy of Henri Nouwen

Henri Nouwen (1932-1996) spoke to multitudes about the irreversible and all embracing love of God.  We are the beloved, he firmly proclaimed.  But his own spiritual journey was marked by profound feelings of inadequacy as he struggled to know and taste God’s love.  This program considers how Nouwen defines the landscape of our own deepest yearnings.  Includes all meals.
