FAIRFIELD YA / Bi-Weekly Tuesday Small Group: Book Study on “Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World" by Henri Nouwen
Meets bi-weekly for 7 sessions. For 23-39 yr olds
Dates: June 6, 20, July 5*, 18, August 1, 15, 29 (*July 5th is a Wednesday. Group was moved to accommodate 4th of July Weekend.)
This work began as a conversation between friends. Fred Bratman, a secular journalist and writer, asked Henri Nouwen to write a book that explained the spiritual life in terms that he and other friends living a fast-paced, city life could understand. Nouwen plumbs the depths of what is most personal and vital in his own Christian faith and shares it in a masterpiece that transcends religious barriers and speaks to the universal truth of the divine.
“What does it mean to live as God’s beloved? In this short book, Henri Nouwen explores this question, describing to an unbelieving friend how embracing our identity as a beloved child of God transforms our lives and the way we make decisions.” —Discipleship Journal
