Am in Pathalgaon, Chhattisgarh, spent the last 9 days giving 2 batches of training and tomorrow will start another 2 in another place.
So exhausting, but in the evenings, I've taken time out to read quite a bit more than I usually do.
Was reading "The Jesus I never Knew" by Phillip Yancey in the train, loved it, but put it on hold, in order to finish a bunch of Henri Nouwens that Sr. Elizabeth loaned me for these few weeks while I'm here.
So I started on "Wounded Healer" which is supposed to be his best, but found it too difficult to read, so dumped it and picked up "Sabatical Journey" which is his journal (edited by friends) during a sabatical he took which was also the last year of his life. He died a few weeks after the last post.
A fabulous read... gripping... and it spoke right to my situation just like the last 2 Nouwens that I read - "Reaching Out" & "In the name of Jesus".
I've become a fan. And if anyone is thinking of getting me a gift, I'll post a list of Nouwens that I want on the blog.
Now I'm halfway through his biography which is equally interesting but in a different way. It tells of the complex person that Nouwen was and his struggles.
All this reading has been changing me hugely... will ruminate on just how in another post, when I get back to Delhi.
