(No reviews yet) Write a Review
As L'Arche Daybreak and L'Arche Canada approach their 50th anniversary, this beautifully-written memoir tells the inside story of daily life with people with learning disabilities in this unique community. It is full of touching, sometimes amusing, but always life-affirming stories from the life together of Beth Porter, who has been a part of the L'Arche Daybreak community for nearly forty years, and other members of the community, and charts Beth's own spiritual journey during this time. The book includes a chapter about Henri Nouwen's time as part of the Daybreak community.
AUTHOR: taught university English in Canada before coming to L'Arche in 1980. She was lead editor working on Befriending Life: Encounters with Henri Nouwen (DLT, 2001). For many years she has written reflections for the Catholic missal published by Novalis.
