Daily Thoughts from Jean Vanier - 9/5/09

// Jean Vanier English



Roots

Without roots we can neither discover where we belong, nor can we grow. Without stability we cannot confront the basic questions of life. Without stability we cannot know our true selves. It is only as we put down roots into the earth that we begin to see the fruits. To be earthed is to come alive in a new sense of mission. A new capacity to give life is born, not by myself but in the body of community.

- Jean Vanier, Community and Growth, p.82
