Pensée #4: Henri Nouwen on Pastoral Conversation

“…[Pastoral] conversation is not merely a skillful use of conversational techniques to manipulate people into the Kingdom of God, but a deep human encounter in which people are willing to put their own faith and doubt, their own hope and despair, their own light and darkness at the disposal of others who want to find a way through their confusion and touch the solid core of life.”

~Henri Nouwen, The Wounded Healer, p. 43
