Theme: LORD, TEACH US TO PRAY
John Wesley wrote: “God does nothing except in response to believing prayer.” Perhaps Mr. Wesley was driving that train past the station to get the caboose to the door because surely Almighty God can and does act sovereignly.
At the same time, we would do well to engage with his sentiment that God wants to meet with us in prayer – not just so He can get instructions from us about what we want Him “to do”, but so that by “being” in His presence, we are being transformed more and more into his likeness and becoming more and more deeply committed to His mission in the world.
Prayer is both an art and a discipline. It can take many different forms and is experienced in a variety of levels of intensity, but it is absolutely vital to everyone following Jesus as Lord.
Speaker: Sister Sue Mosteller C.S.J.
Born in Akron, Ohio, Sister Sue Mosteller received most of her education from the Sisters of St. Joseph in Toronto and taught school in British Columbia and Ontario for fifteen years. She has a degree in English (University of Toronto) and an honorary doctorate (Tyndale University College and Seminary).
After meeting Jean Vanier in 1967 she became interested in the plight of people with disabilities and moved to the L’Arche Daybreak community in Richmond Hill where she has lived and worked with people with disabilities for forty years, retiring in 2012.
Sr. Sue replaced Jean Vanier as the International Coordinator of L’Arche and traveled widely, where she was able to experience other cultures and religions, and to visit and assist in birthing new L’Arche communities in many countries of the world.
With Henri J. M. Nouwen, Daybreak’s pastor, Sr. Sue opened the “Dayspring”, a small spiritual center for spiritual growth. Dayspring offers retreats and workshops focusing on the spiritual life, and announcing a spirituality inspired by the poor at the heart of the community.
Sr. Sue has published three books, the latest in 2006 entitled, Light Through the Crack; Life After Loss (Doubleday 2006) and edited a book by Henri Nouwen, Home Tonight (Doubleday 2009).
