DISCOVERING YOUR SACRED IDENTITY


WENDELL BERRY

A Spirituality of Sustenance

An online course

Wendell Berry, through his many writings (including essays, fiction, and poetry), has offered us a gift of once again seeing the sacredness of life – all life! In light of this, how ought we to live? This question is not an abstract one, but rather one to be asked of each of us where we stand presently. This course will reflect on the life and writings of Wendell Berry, drawing out his understanding of what it means to live as God’s people in God’s world, enjoying the wonder of creation and community.

Doing Life With God.

“As long as we relate primarily to each other’s wealth, health, stability, intelligence, and soul strength, we cannot develop true community. Community is not a talent show in which we dazzle the world with our combined gifts. Community is the place where our poverty is acknowledged and accepted, not as something we have to learn to cope with as best as we can but as a true source of new life.” (Henri Nouwen)
