Henri Nouwen

I, like Jools, have been greatly enjoying Henri Nouwen’s book of preparation for the Easter season. He challenges me and prods me to love God more, and more simply, and more actively. But following some comments on Mr H’s blog, where Mr Nouwen was quoted having written something that personally I have difficulty with…

I have a question:

Can God use any and all of his creation to speak his truth to our hearts?

If so, is it ok if I am still blessed and encouraged by most of the writings of a person who, as far as I can tell, loved God and his neighbour as himself?

Is it ok to disagree with 1% of someone’s work and still be blessed by the rest?

Or should it be all or nothing?
