Taken, Blessed, Broken, Given

I am happily rediscovering my old friend Henri Nouwen. If you follow the link above...I had bookmarked this sermon, from 30 Good Minutes, back during the Lenten season, but when I reread it tonight it made much more of an impact.

Nouwen says:

We are little people, but if we believe that we are chosen, that we are blessed, that we are broken, to be given, then we can trust that our life will bear fruit. It will multiply. Not only in this life, but beyond it.

Nouwen's own life is witness to this. Thank you, Henri, beloved child of God.

Hi, RJ!

Well, it's great fun finding it online; I feel like a curator.;-) The Text This Week has good links to various art collections...or else I just google it. My day job in PR hackery involves finding good clip art, so I guess this is a more enjoyable extension of that.
