Scope and content

Item consists of handwritten notes and a typescript of a talk on supervising ministers given by Nouwen at the Berkeley Center on October 18, 1977. Nouwen argues that supervising ministers make life more transparent for students by interpreting nature, events, and people with a vision of how things really are. But supervisors can only do this when they themselves are moving from opaqueness to transparency. Nouwen talks about the importance of the spiritual life of the supervisor.
