Episode 209 // Carol Berry on the Compassion of Henri Nouwen & Vincent Van Gogh

In today’s conversation we have the chance to talk with Carol Berry, artist and author of Learning From Henri Nouwen and Vincent Van Gogh: A Portrait of the Compassionate Life.

We talk about the lived, incarnational kind of wisdom that both Nouwen and Van Gogh exhibited in their life and work. Also, we talk about the intersection of these two luminous figures with Carol and her husband’s life in ministry from L.A. to the northeast. Carol Berry presents us with a clear picture of what the compassionate life really looks like by asking us to see things through the lens of the psychologist/priest and the “failed” missionary artist.

Carol Berry is an artist, educator and lecturer at the Vermont Humanities Council. She has also published chapters in the books Compassionate Eschatology: The Future as Friend and Turning the Wheel: Henri Nouwen and Our Search for God. She has an MA in art education from California State University.

Casey Tygrett’s book, As I Recall: Discovering the Place of Memories in Our Spiritual Life, is also available now.
