Claiming God’s Love
Using his own personal experiences and encounters with others during his ministry over the years, Sylvain Lavoie OMI explores Jesus’ commandment to “love your neighbour as yourself” (Mark 12:31). With the help of stories, reflections and scripture, Lavoie reformulates Jesus’ words as “love yourself” and gently offers insights into how to journey into self-awareness and step into greater self-love. Accompanying him is the wisdom of Henri Nouwen, Richard Rohr, Ronald Rolheiser and other spiritual thinkers. Each chapter ends with inspiring words from Nouwen’s writings along with reflection questions to help you integrate your learning into your daily life.
