Managing Monday with Henri Nouwen: Take 3

Posted by on Oct 24, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

Henri Nouwen (1932-1996) was a Dutch born Roman Catholic priest, academic, author and theologian. Nouwen reached the top of the academic ladder with posts at Notre Dame, Yale and Harvard, but made the surprising decision to leave academia and to work with physically and mentally handicapped people at the L’Arche Daybreak community in Richmond Hill, Ontario.

Here are some of his thoughts…

  • You don’t think your way into a new kind of living. You live your way into a new kind of thinking – Henri Nouwen
  • Each step of love is like a candle burning in the night. It doesn’t take the darkness away, but it guides us through the darkness – Henri Nouwen
  • When we are crushed like grapes, we cannot think of the wine we will become – Henri Nouwen
  • I’m beginning to see that much of prayer is grieving – Henri Nouwen

As always, nice chatting…
