About Walk with Jesus (from Amazon):

This book of meditations by Henri Nouwen, inspired by a series of drawings by Sr. Helen David, represents traditional Stations of the Cross through the passion and suffering of the world’s poor. A political prisoner behind bars, a peasant burdened by a load of wood, an abandoned child, a mother grieving for her murdered son, an exhausted farmer, four martyred churchwomen . . . In these images Nouwen sees the ongoing passion of Christ.

Sr. Helen’s drawings are stark and moving, but they do not lead to despair. Rather, they “help us unite our own broken humanity with the humanity of the men, women, and children portrayed…This union becomes possible through the suffering and risen body of Jesus. In and through Jesus, our world can become one because in this divine love he embraces all of us, and desire that we all be one as he and his father are one.”

Why read alone?Book Nook at St. Patrick's

Reading is so much more fun when you can share your interests and insights with new and old friends.

Join with Episcopalians and other Christians from across Colorado to engage a variety of different texts—history, theology, fiction, spirituality, and more.

Participants meet via the free and easy-to-use Zoom platform, which can be used with any computer or mobile device (you can even call into a session if you’re on the road!). Don’t let a fear of the technology stop you; it’s really easier than you might think!

We expect to add cohorts as the online book club gains momentum. They will be kept intentionally small (~6-7 people) to facilitate online conversation. Don’t delay if you’re interested in joining! Days, times, and texts for each group will be decided collectively once a critical mass is reached.
