Top Story: An Anniversary Email

The theme for this bulletin sprang from an email I received one day last June from Julie Gittins, house leader of my L’Arche home for three years in the 1980s. “Today” she wrote, “I am celebrating the 25th anniversary of coming to L’Arche!” In the address line were her closest L’Arche assistant friends from 25 years ago—five of us who are still in L’Arche and four former assistants—a psychologist in Australia working with torture victims, a social worker in the non-profit sector in Canada, and an American couple, he a theology teacher and she a development director for an African American school.
