Nouwen The Wounded Healer Free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB D a suffering minister It is his contention that ministers are called to recognize the sufferings of their time in their own hearts and make that recognition the starting point of their service For Nouwen ministers must be willing to go beyond their professional role and leave themselves open as fellow human beings with the same wounds and suffering in the image of Christ In other words we heal from our own wounds Filled with examples from everyday experience. The book looked like a uick read due to its brief 100 page length but this was deceptive I feel Nouwen s message in the first half of the book while still relevant represents the society and culture of my parents generation We have lost faith in technology he writes This is the opposite of the truth for Generation Y and whatever the subseuent generations have been labeled My peers put faith in little beyond science and technology Writing in 1972 Nouwen perhaps saw an age that used technology to send young men in helicopters to napalm and Agent Orange a country they didn t understand Dismal technology indeed but the personal computer was soon to reinvigorate the culture on that viewpointThe second half of the book is the relevant half for a modern audience Nouwen s insight that we can all share out of our woundedness the idea that loneliness is elemental make it worth reading The idea that we must live and die on our own convictions and yet others must do the same points to the soundness of this apparently paradoxical idea Why must we be lonely Because we must be ourselves accepting God and life and fear and love as they come to us Why is loneliness essential If one cannot endure it one cannot be free And Nouwen s point that we as wounded healers allow others into our space saying I too am alone come and sit with me it is a strange one but one that I think speaks to the intersection of free will and our ability to help others Pandora uick read due to its brief 100 page length but this was deceptive I feel Nouwen s message in the first half of the book while still relevant represents the society and culture of my parents generation We have lost faith in technology he writes This is the opposite of the truth for Generation Y and whatever the subseuent generations have been labeled My peers put faith in little beyond science and technology Writing in 1972 Nouwen perhaps saw an age that Anayurt Oteli used technology to send young men in helicopters to napalm and Agent Orange a country they didn t The Dhammapada understand Dismal technology indeed but the personal computer was soon to reinvigorate the culture on that viewpointThe second half of the book is the relevant half for a modern audience Nouwen s insight that we can all share out of our woundedness the idea that loneliness is elemental make it worth reading The idea that we must live and die on our own convictions and yet others must do the same points to the soundness of this apparently paradoxical idea Why must we be lonely Because we must be ourselves accepting God and life and fear and love as they come to The Legend of Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses: Piano Solos us Why is loneliness essential If one cannot endure it one cannot be free And Nouwen s point that we as wounded healers allow others into our space saying I too am alone come and sit with me it is a strange one but one that I think speaks to the intersection of free will and our ability to help others

review Æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB × Henri J.M. Nouwen The Wounded Healer Free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB The Wounded Healer is a hope filled and profoundly simple book that speaks directly to those men and women who want to be of service in their church or community but have found the traditional ways often threatening and ineffective In this book Henri Nouwen combines creative case studies of ministry with stories from diverse cultures and religious traditions in preparing a new model for ministry Weaving keen cultural analysis with his psychological and religi. I came to Henri Nouwen on the recommendation of Fred Rogers and I was not disappointed This slim volume is somewhat dated I was pleasantly surprised to see two King Crimson songs uoted in the second essay for instance but its central message is timeless that the very experiences that wound us most deeply are also those from which we can draw the greatest strength Nouwen does not romanticize suffering it is not suffering itself that is beautiful but rather what human beings can do with it Nouwen uses the metaphor of the Grand Canyon a scar on the landscape in one sense and yet in another sense a place of almost unbearable beauty I use the metaphor of a bog nobody likes to get stuck in a bog It s fetid and rank and sometimes it feels as though you ll never escape But a bog is also the place where coal forms and coal burns Indeed and this is Nouwen s central thesis it is through facing our own hurts and fears that we can begin to help others face theirs not to make the hurts and fears disappear but to be fully present with them in the midst of their darkness and with the coal of our own experience to be for them a fire in the night
