'Our communities should be signs of joy and celebration ... If we are accepted with our limitations as well as our abilities, community gradually becomes a place of liberation ... this terrible place can become one of life and growth.'

Jean Vanier

Contemporary society is the product of the disintegration of more or less natural or familial groupings. People area afraid, uncertain - and shut themselves away. But they need companions, friends with whom they can share their lives, their visions and their ideals; in short, they need community.

Community and Growth – now regarded as one of today’s great classics – is a unique book. It is no dry and systematic treatise, but rather a brilliant series of starting points for reflection on the nature and meaning of community.

Jean Vanier was a philosopher and theologian. He was the founder of L’Arche International and the winner of the Templeton Prize 2015 which recognises outstanding contributions to spiritual writing and to the spiritual life. He died on May 7th, 2019. He was 90.
