We Need One Another
In April 2008, Jean Vanier led a simple retreat in Nyahururu, Kenya - a place that, not long before, had been shattered by violence and bloodshed. With frequent reference to the Gospel of John, Vanier communicated God's love and care to a group of deeply shaken people. His talks are offered here to 'help each one of us become messengers of peace, of mercy, and of forgiveness'.
'To be loved by those [who are famous, beautiful, and admired] gives us a good feeling. But to be loved by the poor, by those with disabilities . . . is the real place where unconditional love and healing will find us. How do we come to that practically in our lives? In this book, Jean Vanier gives us both a vision and a map.'
