#112: an unexpected, precious letter and gift from a sweet sister in the Lord telling me she is thinking and praying for me. Love in action.
#113: A small booklet in said letter that I can't wait to read: From Brokenness to Community by Jean Vanier
on the back:
"The text in this book originated as two lectures given by Jean Vanier at Harvard University in 1988. He speaks eloquently of the lessons he has learned from the disabled adults he serves at his community in France and at other houses. He speaks of his own healing and his own need for people. He speaks of the power of belonging and how it satisfies the deepest needs in people. Vanier does not romanticize community. For him, community is a place of struggle and sometimes of conflict. Community is a place where ego dies, a place of surrender. However, it is also a place of celebration, joy and ultimately of human fulfillment."
