A Community Conversation with L'Arche Portland and the University of Portland
Tuesday, November 14, 2017
4:30pm - 6:00pm
University of Portland - Bauccio Commons
Hosted by L'Arche Portland, the Garaventa Center: Center for Catholic Intellectual Life and American Culture, and the Franz Center for Leadership
L'Arche Portland and the University of Portland invite you to join us for a community discussion exploring the concept of "Becoming Human", as introduced by the founder of L'Arche, Jean Vanier, and the challenges and opportunities that it presents us in our lives.
Brenda Greiner (Director of the Shepard Academic Resource Center), along with Jacqueline Mosher and Joni Smith from L'Arche Portland, will help us explore an experience we avoid at all costs - failing - but which allows us to better know ourselves and become more human.
"I am struck by how sharing our weakness and difficulties is more nourishing to others than sharing our qualities and successes."
- Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche
