In Lifesigns, Nouwen explores three elements of what he considered the call of all people: Intimacy - the gospel invitation to communion with God and relationship with others; Fecundity - the exhortation to be open to a fruitful life of both growth and change; Ecstasy - the Gospel wish and promise of Jesus that "your joy may be complete". Nouwen shows how these elements are essential to our movement from the "house of fear" to the "house of love".

This book was used during the August 2011 Regional Deacon Convocation which was held in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Two breakout sessions were held, which were well attended. Dr. Michael W. Higgins, the official estate appointed biographer of Fr. Nouwen was our featured speaker on the this book and related subject matters. I recommend the audiobook for your listening enjoyment.
