Henri Nouwen (1932-1996) is described by Richard Rohr, OFM, as one of the great spiritual writers of the 20th century. Through his thirty-nine books, including The Return of the Prodigal Son and The Wounded Healer, he gave us a vocabulary for contemporary spirituality and formation. In addition to a prolific writing and teaching career, Nouwen, a Dutch Catholic priest, received over 16 000 letters in his life-time and answered each letter with a pastor’s heart. We will draw on some of his pastoral letters – letters about such aspects of the spiritual life as suffering, the nature of God, spiritual disciplines, life transitions, gratitude, trust – and reflect on how these letters speak to our lives today. Participants will share in small groups with regular intervals, if desired, for solitude, reflection, writing and labyrinth walking.

The retreat will be led by TSP members Barbara Lloyd, an experienced retreat leader, and Gabrielle Earnshaw, Nouwen’s archivist and editor of Love, Henri: Letters on the Spiritual Life (Random House, 2016).

IMPORTANT: Open to members of Trinity-St. Paul's United Church.
