THE CHURCH IS NOT AN INSTITUTION FORCING US TO FOLLOW ITS RULES. IT IS A COMMUNITY OF PEOPLE INVITING US TO STILL OUR HUNGER AND THIRST AT ITS TABLES.


~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
WE NEED TO BECOME STORYTELLERS AGAIN, AND SO MULTIPLY OUR MINISTRY BY CALLING AROUND US THE GREAT WITNESSES WHO IN DIFFERENT WAYS OFFER GUIDANCE TO DOUBTING HEARTS. ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
A CHRISTIAN LEADER IS NOT A LEADER BECAUSE HE ANNOUNCED A NEW IDEA AND TRIES TO CONVINCE OTHERS OF ITS WORTH; HE IS A LEADER BECAUSE HE FACES THE WORLD WITH EYES FULL OF EXPECTATION, WITH THE EXPERTISE TO TAKE AWAY THE VEIL THAT COVERS ITS HIDDEN POTENTIAL. ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
THE GREAT ILLUSION OF LEADERSHIP IS TO THINK THAT MAN CAN BE LED OUT OF THE DESERT BY SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER BEEN THERE. ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
