Lenten Bible Study / Light Meal

March 13, 2019 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

We will be studying Walk with Jesus, by Henri Nouwen.  Inspired by the drawings of Sister Helen David, Henri Nouwen sees in these images the ongoing passion of Christ in our world today. Stark and moving, her drawings – of an abandoned child, of a political prisoner behind bars, a peasant burdened by a load of firewood, a mother grieving for her murdered son – still do not lead us to despair. Rather, as Nouwen notes, they “help us unite our own broken humanity with the humanity of the men, women, and children portrayed…This union become possible through the suffering and risen body of Jesus. In and through Jesus, our world can become one because in this divine love he embraces all of us, and desires that we all be one, as he and his father are one.”
