Another awesome book by Jean Vanier. This would be great reading for any community to share in. When I was a part of a community of people with disabilities and their families, I took parts of this book as weekly meditation material and it resonated so deeply.
But anyone who is a part of a community life would benefit from this book, especially if the community seems to be “broken”. This is one I keep on my bookshelf, and if it disappears brokennese they do sometimesI buy another one. This is an amazing little book! Here Vanier was speaking to intellectual elites at Harvard about working with the challenged, who outwardly seem to offer little to community life — but in fact they receive life from acceptance by the community, and the community is enlivened by the living water they supply!
Jean Vanier has written an brokennesz to be real, to embrace becoming, to rejoice in our vulnerability and to invite the other in the life affirming journey vanifr community.
He gives vaniet insights to words and concepts that have become so familiar but have lost their power to shape us as sons as daughters of our Father!
Vanier is one of the rare gifts from God that a generation gets and doesn’t realize is a gift until almost the end of their journey. This is a timeless resource for ministers and lay people alike who are looking for how to experience and share God in a more visceral way. Not only inspiring, but humbling. Vanier has captured the essence of our own nature through his interaction with those we call “disabled”. One person found this helpful. In this short read, Jean Vanier touches on some of the primary heart issues with which people struggle.
He is talking directly from his experience with his wisdom from the experience of working with and loving disabled people. One theme is give your life to others and see how God has designed us to live in community. The thoughts I had while reading is how to diagnose my own heart and my motives. Once my own agenda is stripped away and my actions are solely for others, which is rare, then I can see my own heart and superficial humility – and then there is an opportunity for real growth.
This should be on the bookshelf of anyone seeking to serve others. There are many nuggets of wisdom in his words regardless of the people in your life: Good book to read.
