Henri Nouwen: Being At Home

Updated: Mar 3, 2020


"When we think back to the places where we felt most at home,

we quickly see that it was where our hosts gave us the precious freedom

to come and go on our own terms

and did not claim us for their own needs.

Only in a free space can re-creation take place and new life be found.

The real host is the one who offers that space

where we do not have to be afraid

and where we can listen to our own inner voices

and find our own personal way of being human.

But to be such a host

we have to first of all be at home in our own house."


- Henri Nouwen
