As the program was ending I sent this email message to my daughters: "I am listening to the radio to an interview with Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche. A challenging and enriching experience to hear him." As the interview finished I thought the thought that comes to me increasingly: "no group of people,no nation, no race, no religion, no living individual is superior to any other -- we are all God's children."
Thank you for sharing the wisdom and faith of Jean Vanier and reminding us that we are all God's children, even though we miss the mark daily.=========================================Comments above the line may be used, if you wish. I, a white,Protestant,idealist,and committed Christian, left the U.S. in 1944 as a short-term missionary teacher to work in the international mission school in Teheran. The Community School had children from many nations and at least five religions. Later I lived and worked in Lebanon, Shanghai, and Europe for many years. I am still learning more than I am teaching, receiving more than I am giving.
I also appreciated his comments about aging. I am 7+ years older than he.
