Abstract:

"In Our Journey Home Jean Vanier sums up the lessons he has learned and the wisdom he has accumulated during the past thirty years. More than an autobiography or a simple history of L'Arche Our Journey Home describes what the experience of living with the handicapped has taught Vanier about the beauty and holiness of life. From this experience, he writes of the need to overcome the divisions and walls that separate us from one another and prevent us from recognizing our underlying oneness. Though rooted in the L'Arche movement, Vanier's message is really universal. He explores the basic meaning of human existence as reflected in such experiences as childhood, friendship, aging, illness, death, bereavement, loneliness, and community."--BOOK JACKET.
