Henri Nouwen Society

Starting a Group

Starting a reading group is a very rewarding experience, and is easy to do.  We have discussion guides for many of Nouwen’s books that can be downloaded from the resource section or by  contacting us.  You might specifically invite a few individuals or couples to join the group, or you might consider a broader invitation through church bulletin boards and newsletters, announcements at the end of church services, etc.  Feel free to contact us if you’d like us to post the details of your reading group on our website.

For further ideas, read Jeff Imbach’s (past president of the Henri Nouwen Society Board in Canada) reflection on what it was like for he and his wife to facilitate a reading group.

We look forward to hearing about your experience.
