Posted on: February 23rd, 2007 Nouwen: an Example of Tanglible Orthodoxy

"John Eades said: ‘This is a time of purification. A time to identify your ambigous relationships and your ambivalent attitudes, and to make some decisions and choose some directions.’ Lord, it is you who said this to me. If I believe in your church and the voice of those who speak in her name, in your name, then it was you who pointed out to me the meaning of my stay here [during this spiritual retreat]: ‘Identify and choose.’" (from Henri Nouwen, A Cry for Mercy)

John Eades (as my dad pointed out to me) was Nouwen’s spiritual advisor.
