For Henri J. M. Nouwen (1932-1996), discernment is hearing a deeper sound beneath the noise of ordinary life and seeing through the appearances to the interconnectedness of all things to gain a vision of “how things hold together” (theorik physike) in our lives and in the world.
Though Nouwen taught and counseled many people during his lifetime, his principles and approach to spiritual discernment were never collected into a single volume or developed into a book. Now, in association with the Nouwen Legacy Trust, Michael Christensen and Rebecca Laird have taken his journals, coursework, and unpublished writings a developed the definitive trilogy of spiritual direction, formation and discernment books.
The editors—Rebecca Laird and Michael Christensen–will present Nouwen’s spirituality of discernment and discuss the new book on Sunday, June 30, from 11:30am-12:30pm at Epworth Berkeley United Methodist Church , 1953 Hopkins St. Berkeley, CA., where Rev. Christensen is senior pastor.
Dr. Christensen will present Nouwen’s spirituality of discernment in a two-hour seminar format on Saturday, September 14, at Drew University, Madison, NJ.
