10 Experiences in 10 Days

10 Experiences

Happy New Year, dear friends!  So many new things in the works for 2018!!  First, over the next 10 days, I will be offering 10 experiences to engage in Henri Nouwen’s book, Life of the Beloved.  I would love for you to pick up a copy of this book!  You can read it in one afternoon with a great cup of coffee or with a group discussing his many powerful thoughts over the course of a few weeks.

I created these experiences for a prayer vigil set up the week before Christmas, so at the end of each day, I will post pictures and give ideas of how you could set up each prayer station.

I LOVE this book.  The 1 caution I have about offering this book to anyone is that Nouwen’s view from the outset is that there is a secular world and a spiritual world.  I am more of a follower of Richard Rohr who sees All Are Connected.  We don’t have 1 side over here that we call secular and then WAY on the OPPOSITE end a side we call spiritual.  God resides in all things so all things are spiritual.  Seeing like this takes practice and I still stumble over putting my thoughts into words, so I give so much room for grace in reading Life of the Beloved.

Come experiment with an empty cup….
