Journey to Personal and Social Transformation - January 31

A rare opportunity to join Jean Vanier and Balfour Mount in a live conversation.

Jean Vanier is the Founder of L'Arche Communities throughout the world and Balfour Mount the founder of the Canadian hospice movement.

I highly recommend your taking advantage of this event if you have the time to do so. If you are in the Ottawa area, you can go to a number of local churches to view a simulcast and dialogue with others. If you cannot attend the simulcast, you can access the live webcast from anywhere in the world. You need to register ahead of time at : http://www.larcheforum.com/forum.asp

The following is from the introduction to the forum provided on the forum web site:

What are your hopes, for yourself, and for our society? Many people today are beset by fear - of "the other," of the future, of illness or attack or loneliness. Can we learn new ways of thinking and living?

Drs. Vanier and Mount, two highly credible Canadian leaders, have a vision of a world where everyone belongs. Their keen intellects are matched by their profoundly humble, life-long commitment to those who are most vulnerable and to the building of a more inclusive and compassionate society. Each can help us in our journey to wholeness and transformation.
