Number of pages: 144
Jean Vanier, beloved spiritual writer and founder of L’Arche, shares with us timeless wisdom for creating communities of welcome and justice for all peoples.
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the very first L’Arche community, the world-renowned Canadian philosopher and theologian Jean Vanier once again shares with us the wisdom that comes from a life lived with God’s beloved, the often marginalized members of society. Vanier offers to us profound insight for cultivating and creating churches that are truly inclusive of all members so that all might have a share in God’s gifts. While speaking specifically to the contemporary crisis in the Church, Vanier’s vision applies to any society or community, from families to wide social groups.
Jean Vanier, Ph.D., son of former Governor General of Canada Georges Vanier and Pauline Vanier, is a philosopher, humanitarian and founder of LArche, an international organization that creates communities where people with intellectual disabilities and those who assist them live together.
