More than 40 years ago, Jean Vanier invited two men with developmental disabilities to live in his home. This simple act of friendship and compassion has grown into a worldwide phenomenon. Vanier is the founder of L'Arche communities and Faith and Light, two organizations that bring together people with developmental disabilities and the friends who share their lives. There are now more than 130 L'Arche communities on six continents and in 30 countries. Our Life Together gathers significant extracts of Vanier's correspondence from 1964 to the present. In a spare and meditative style, Vanier reflects on world events, his travels, his own journey through his faith, and his deep desire for interfaith dialogue and peace. The letters reveal a man of tremendous insight and compassion whose example can inspire us all.
