  1. I used to LOVE Nouwen—this makes me want to re-read some of his work, because I think I would process it in a completely new way now. I really enjoy your blog!

    • Thanks you CC! I have only just started reading Nouwen. When you feel ready to fully question and search with an open heart what you believe, I recommend George MacDonald’s Unspoken Sermons. If you like fantasy, you may want to start with GM’s fantasy works. My journey is not identical to yours but it did require me to unlearn some things before I could learn the truths.
