'We are the Beloved. We are intimately loved long before our
parents, teachers, spouses, children and friends loved or wounded
us. That's the truth of our lives. That's the truth I want you to
claim for yourself. That's the truth spoken by the voice that says,
"You are my Beloved."' - Henri Nouwen, Life of the Beloved Henri
Nouwen, priest, professor and writer, devoted much of his later
ministry to emphasising the singular concept of our identity as the
Beloved of God. In an interview, he said that he believed the
central moment in Jesus' public ministry to be his baptism in the
Jordan, when Jesus heard the affirmation, 'You are my beloved son
on whom my favour rests.' 'That is the core experience of Jesus,'
Nouwen writes. 'He is reminded in a deep, deep way of who he is ...
I think his whole life is continually claiming that identity in the
midst of everything.' You Are Beloved is a daily devotional created
from the very best of Nouwen's writings, paired with daily
Scripture readings, that reveals our identity as children of God,
and which encourages us to live out that truth in our daily lives.
Nouwen is at once refreshingly accessible, unafraid to wrestle with
challenging questions, and above all an encouraging and sympathetic
voice along the way.
