On a recent Sunday morning I was blown away by a radio interview of Jean Vanier and his L’Arche Movement. Shamefully I must admit that although a special educator for many years, I had never before heard about this humanist and his epic movement where people with and without intellectual disabilities live and share their lives together as peers. Upon the conclusion of the show I started frantically researching his mission; I was on an Adrenalin high of sorts because, finally, I had chanced upon my God for this was the kind of religion and the type of God I had been searching for all my life. I was ecstatic to find out that one of the 147 communities in 35 countries was practically in my backyard. What were the chances– I happily meditated?
