Accidental Friends : Stories from my life in community, Paperback / softback Book

Accidental Friends : Stories from my life in community Paperback / softback


As L'Arche Daybreak and L'Arche Canada approach their 50th anniversary, this beautifully-written memoir tells the inside story of daily life with people with learning disabilities in this unique community.

It is full of touching, sometimes amusing, but always life-affirming stories from the life together of Beth Porter, who has been a part of the L'Arche Daybreak community for nearly forty years, and other members of the community, and charts Beth's own spiritual journey during this time.

The book includes a chapter about Henri Nouwen's time as part of the Daybreak community.
