‘Belonging and Becoming’

‘Belonging should always be a means to personal becoming. It is accepting the risk of dying to aggressiveness and rivalry in order to discover a new freedom and a new fecundity – a new way of giving life to others, but still to belong to others, to be in “one body” with them.’

–Jean Vanier, From Brokenness to Community, p.32
