Spiritual Growth Reading for June

Henri Nouwen’s book Adam: God’s Beloved tells a touching true story of Nouwen’s relationship with Adam, a severely handicapped young man, in the L’Arche Daybreak Community in Toronto, Canada. As Adam’s caretaker, Nouwen experienced transforming love, describing Adam as a Jesus figure who encourages others not only to face their own darkness, but also to discover their inner light. Nouwen challenges his readers to find stillness and allow unexpected people to show us the way to the God’s presence. Three copies of this book may be found on the information table at the back of the church. Simply read and return.
