Item consists of a page of handwritten notes and a typescript of "The Person of the Preacher", a lecture given by Nouwen at General Theological Seminary (New York, NY), on January 21, 1979. Nouwen argues that the preacher not only preaches from the pulpit, but also by the way (s)he lives. The preacher must listen and be obedient to the Word of God and to the word of the people. Thus the preacher becomes available, lays down his/her life for the people of God.
