Mutual Cultures in “Virtual Mode” for the Fall 2014 semester

So let us continue with Jean Vanier’s answers to some questions concerning “becoming human” — which, by the way, is the title of a 1998 book he wrote, a.o.t. about his experience with the chain of homes for severely disabled people, called L’Arche (The Ark).

Dr Pamela Cushing writes that “Vanier’s work expands our understanding of human purpose and the good life through three core questions:

  • What does it mean to be fully human?
  • What does it mean to serve others well?
  • How can unity be fostered among diverse people?”
