Spiritual Growth Reading for August

Jean Vanier’s book Life’s Great Questions addresses questions such as “What is the nature of love?” and “Why are we here?” in the context of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. In this book, Vanier suggests that we answer these questions ourselves by our own actions, and urges the community of faith forward as we journey toward God’s kingdom. His own work with founding homes for the intellectually disabled places questions of love and being in a unique context, and shows the reader new ways of pondering the ineffable. Life’s Great Questions received the 2015 Templeton Prize, an award granted for exceptional contribution to affirming life’s spiritual dimension. Three copies of Vanier’s book are available on the information table at the back of the church. Simply read and return.
