Scope and content

Item consists of a sound recording of Nouwen speaking at Wainwright House as part of the Judith Hollister Lecture Series. Nouwen reflected on the theme of interfaith dialogue through his own spiritual journey and his experience in community at L'Arche. Carl MacMillan and Bill van Buren accompanied Nouwen and spoke about the history of L'Arche generally and Daybreak specifically. The date of Nouwen's talk is not known, although it is believed he gave this talk on the spur of the moment when visiting New York City for other purposes.
