I am so thankful for the life, teachings, and writings of Jean Vanier. I am also grateful for the opportunity to volunteer and now be an Associate Member of L'Arche Toronto. This has indeed been a transforming part of my journey as a follower of Jesus. Jean Vanier has helped so many of us live out more fully the life God calls us to: a life of love, compassion, patience, respect, forgiveness and so much more. It is a great strength to journey together.
