The Way of Suffering
Publication date: 2020-01-01
A collection of inspiring true stories, poems, and essays that show the path to growth, wisdom, and compassion that comes through suffering. Suffering is hard and painful. Although we do not wish it for ourselves or those we love, it is an inescapable reality of the human condition. While it can cause us to wither and despair, suffering can also be a path to insight, strength, and compassion. Welcome your meditations into the company of Kate Bowler, Pema Chödrön, Robert Ellsberg, Thich Nhat Hanh, Michael Leach, James Martin, Henri Nouwen, Richard Rohr, and Marianne Williamson, among others.
