Advent & Lent Book Discussions

Announcing the Nouwen Book Discussion for Advent 2019!

During each Advent and Lent a group of people “gather together” from around the world on our Book Discussion Blog page.

Please plan to join us this Advent season as we read and discuss Henri Nouwen’s latest book Following Jesus – Finding Our Way Home in an Age of Anxiety.

At one of the lowest points in Henri Nouwen’s life, he gave a series of lectures on the importance of following Jesus in an age of anxiety. Drawn from those talks, this new work reveals what sustained Nouwen to remain faithful to the teachings of Jesus, and he explains why—with so many choices available to the twenty-first-century seeker—the greatest reward for those looking for spiritual direction is rediscovering Jesus’s teaching on love.

Join us on Wednesday, November 27th for greetings and introductions. Then beginning on Sunday, December 1st, we’ll journey together through Advent reading and sharing insights learned from this powerful book.
