Henri Nouwen and His Ministry of Companioning Blog Series

Since it's launching last June 3 of my blog series (hosted by my friend JR Woodward), I've really enjoyed interacting with several readers (most of whom I don't even know personally) on the subject matter of spiritual accompaniment as modeled by Henri Nouwen himself. Because of the great responses I've received thus far, I'm seriously contemplating running the entire series again - although this time around I will host it myself on this blog site which I maintain. I just have to think through the whole timing thing when to do it again. But what a way to engage with the topic with fellow travelers in the journey!
