Nouwen Then: Speaking
Speak to us about the deepest yearning of our hearts, about our many wishes, about hope; not about the many strategies for survival, but about trust; not about new methods of satisfying our emotional needs, but about love.
Speak to us about a vision larger than our changing perspectives and about a voice deeper than the clamorings of our mass media.
Yes, speak to us about something or someone greater than ourselves. Speak to us about...God.
Henri Nouwen, Life of the Beloved
