LENT SUNDAY 1 : BECOMING THE BELOVED 2 - by HENRI NOUWEN 22.2.15




First Sunday of Lent

we continue meditations with 2nd of Henri Nouwen's 
BECOMING THE BELOVED



*

Embrace our brokenness in the Light of being Blessed.
Sharing that blessing in blessing others doesn't diminish our blessing.
Be generous!



“solitude begins with a time and a place for God, and God alone.
If we really believe not only that God exists but also that God is actively present
in our lives-- healing, teaching and guiding-- we need to set aside a time and space
to give God our undivided attention."
[Matt 6:6]

Ouch, I'm busted on this one. Always too much going on in my mind to concentrate or otherwise 'be quiet'. Would LOVE to work on that.

I grew up in a home where my mother went to the Christian Science church, my father was an agnostic, so I don't have much experience with Lent.

How true are those words, Sharon! I haven't read anything by him, but my daughter discovered his writing while in seminary and enjoys him. On a funny note, she even named her cat "Henri"!

Well LuAnn this is a gentle intro then with these brief video thoughts - glad you're here and you're welcome to pop in and have a listen anytime. It does quiet my thoughts in a new direction and honouring myself with this time out does have benefits! Thanks for being here :)


Carole - that cat story is great - def a smart cat I'd guess...;)
Lots of his writing to choose from - a nice intro is the daily meditation email from his online site - gives a taste of a variety of his writing topics . Thanks for taking time to chat :)
