A compilation of Nouwen's thought written posthumously, an excellent guide for developing a deep spiritual life. I have used this material for guiding persons who have returned from intense cross-cultural experience.

Radical Gratitude by Mary Jo Leddy

Most of us are more resentful than grateful because we compare ourselves with those who have more, who've done more. Leddy shows how even the miracle of our birth should be celebrated in gratitude.

“Peacemaking contains all the elements of the Christian faith. Peacemaking is the result of not only taking the beatitudes seriously, but living them. It involves right relationships. Right relationships with God, right relationships with God’s people and right relationships with God’s creation. It involves love. Proper love of self, love of God and creation, and love of all people—even our enemies. It is not passive, it is active; it is peacemaking not peacekeeping. Above all, it is following the way of Jesus, which was the way of the cross, where his power was 'made perfect in weakness' (2 Cor. 12:9).”
