In the last few days I have been listening to a series by the late Henri Nouwen on The Life of the Beloved.
I never met Henri, and he died (quite young) before I might have.
But through his writings – and this video series – I feel as I have met him. His face is strong, his voice powerful.
The video series can be found on YouTube – here.
As I see him speaking to a large group I hear God’s voice – the “first voice” as Nouwen describes it – saying again what I personally need to hear, over and over.
The voice that said to Jesus, “You are my beloved” speaks also to you and me.
These talks have been good for me these Lenten days – they may be for you too!
