From Pastor Squires: Special Message about "Slow Lent" Series
How do these revelations now color our use of Nouwen's writings? I am not sure. The below article is well-written about the struggle.
What I do know is that we will dedicate prayers each Wednesday for those women abused by Vanier and women abused around the world, especially within the Church.
Where Nouwen speaks truth from God's Word, we will still gain encouragement. But any spiritual guide who is not Christ Himself is a flawed sinner. And yet, here we again are reminded that God chooses to use flawed sinful people to be spiritual guides so that we turn our eyes to the only Good Shepherd...Jesus Christ.
