During a difficult season in my Christian life, Henri Nouwen provided me with manna from heaven, water in a weary and dry place and guidance on spiritual formation that I still live out of. I would say he is certainly one of the greatest spiritual formation writers of any age. The picture on the left is from one of his books which deals both with slowing down and listening to God, and also being honest with God and waiting upon the Lord.

James Howell provided this link today—

Henri Nouwen gave a wonderfully insightful lecture on this, called “The Spirituality of Waiting,” which you can read online, or hear via a recording of Nouwen himself!

It will be worth your time.

“For those who wait in the Lord will renew their strength,

They will mount up like eagles with wings of great length. They will run and not get weary, they will walk and not faint. Giving strength to the weary, and power to his saints.”

Dona nobis pacem,

BW3
