To Keep Bearing Fruit

To Keep Bearing Fruit

How, once we are committed to community life, can we ensure that we never stop growing and living? How can we ensure that we keep walking towards an ever greater human insecurity? Once we have taken root in the ground we have to continue to grow and this means being pruned, cut back, and sometimes even broken so that we can go on bearing fruit.
Jean Vanier, Community and Growth, p.138
