Journey of the Heart- Henri Nouwen

  • Aug 30, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • Thought Exchange & Visual learning

Journey of the Heart One of the most significant spiritual leaders of our generation, Henri Nouwen. A Roman Catholic priest, University of Notre Dame, Yale and Harvard professor, author and social activist, Nouwen possessed a unique insight into the human condition. Through his many books, which continue to be widely popular, Nouwen wrote passionately and eloquently about our human frailty and brokenness, while identifying and addressing the spiritual needs of today. Journey of the Heart is a thought-provoking look at the life of this unassuming, charismatic scholar considered by many of his contemporaries as one of the best and brightest minds of his time. Abandoning the insular works of academia, Nouwen embarked on a radical and personal pilgrimage of downward mobility that led him to L'Arche, a community of people with developmental disabilities. This documentary features an inspiring conversation with Nouwen shot just a year before his death. Interviews with key friends, prominent colleagues and family members help complete the picture of this unique man of faith - a person of passion and compassion.

    I liked having the chance to find out more about this man and the lively discussion following. I went on Amazon and ordered some of his books. Some are only 1 cent used.

    P.S. It has been a couple of years since I have seen the documentary so I cannot reference what was addressed or not (in the film) about his gay expression. I do remember that he (as many) went through some challenging experiences with life. I did read about him on line (some time back) and it talked about his turmoil with that. The video does bring up many interesting points about him- so I figured it would produce some good discussion afterwards- as many films do.

    Well, hope it's open about the fact that Henri was an openly gay catholic priest. His seminal book--genesee diary--was written here at the abbey in piffard, btw.
