is a letter from La Ferme. It is a monthly meditation. Each month, we ask a different contributor to respond to one of the following questions:
• “What nourishes your inner life?”
• “Can you tell us about an encounter that transformed you?”
July 2023 – How can one manage to nourish one’s inner life in a country under war ? From Lviv, in Ukraine, Ulyana Roy and Rick Hatem offer us their answer.
June 2023 – A young core member of L’Arche in Cuise-La-Motte, Marie Proust agreed to open us to her inner life by answering our questionnaire… A “Proustian” questionnaire, obviously !
May 2023 – How does he do ? One of the international leaders of L’Arche reveals for Inner Life his morning routine: to nourish his inner life, Stefan Posner takes a moment, every morning, to read the Jewish Bible. This tunes him up “like a musical instrument.”
