FLOWERS FROM THE ARK
The author, who founded L'Arche Heartland in Overland Park, Kansas, USA, has gathered stories from the homes of L'Arche - the worldwide ministry for developmentally disabled adults founded by Jean Vanier and made famous by the renowned author Henri J. M. Nouwen. Here people, both disabled and able-bodied, make community as they work, live, laugh and pray together. The stories they share are moments of illumination, funny and bittersweet, which reveal the deepest qualities of human nature. By Christella Buser. 104 pp.
