A Spirituality of Living

By Henri Nouwen

WHEN and WHERE:  This 5-week study group will meet on Tuesdays at noon, beginning November 17.  Rev. Amanda Standiford will facilitate the meetings via Zoom.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  What’s the secret to living a spiritual life?  So much is happening in our world, we often get distracted and listen to voices other than the voice of God.  “If we want to be disciples of Jesus, we have to live a disciplined life,” Nouwen asserts.  In the spiritual life, discipline requires conscious effort to keep every area in life from being filled.  It means creating space in one’s life for God. 

Nouwen identifies 3 essential disciplines for maintaining a life of discipleship, solitude, community, and ministry.  In solitude, disciples learn to listen to God through prayer.  They come to realize they are beloved sons and daughters of God.  In community they learn to celebrate and practice vulnerability and forgiveness.  After they have experiences solitude and community, disciples feel God’s call to minister to a hurting world.  God empowers them to do amazing things.
