In The Spirituality of Living Henri Nouwen identifies 3 essential disciplines for maintaining a life of discipleship: solitude, community, and ministry. In solitude we learn to listen to God through prayer. We realize that we are beloved sons and daughters of God.In community we learn to celebrate, as well as to practice vulnerability and forgiveness.After we have experienced solitude and community, we feel God's call to minister to a hurting world. God empowers us to do amazing things.This encouraging, insightful book will inspire you to practice solitude, community, and ministry. The result, Nouwen promises, is a fruitful, Spirit-filled life.
