Expecting a Surprise

Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear or feel it when it comes to us, Let's not be afraid to receive each day's surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy. It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.

- Henri Nouwen (Bread for the Journey)

As we all greet 2011 together, may we have an expectant heart, eager to welcome whatever surprises God may have in store for us. Happy New Year!

I've listed some Nouwen events I'll be involved in for the year 2011 (see Events). If you happen to be near an area where an event is taking place, do check it out and hopefully you can participate. Thank you for your interest in the propagation of Nouwen's enduring legacy.
