HOW TO DO ORDINARY THINGS, Part 1
“Love doesn’t mean doing extraordinary or heroic things. It means knowing how to do ordinary things with tenderness.” In 1964, Jean Vanier bought a little house in northern France and invited two mentally disabled men to come and live with him. It was a radical approach to thinking about people on the fringe of society — to live with them, and most importantly, learn from them, to look for their gifts. Part 2 airs Tuesday, September 9.
