In Love & Belonging Jean Vanier shares his memories of the early days of L´Arche and the spiritual insights its subsequent development has provided. These recollections are supplemented by the narration of Peter Flemington and by excerpts from the film he made only three years after the founding of the first L´Arche community in 1964. The music is supplied by current residents and assistants of that community at Trosly-Breuil, providing both a history and a meditation on a rich and rewarding spiritual adventure.

What makes a community?

L´Arche communities, made up of the developmentally disadvantaged and those committed to assisting them, now exists in 35 countries. Each L´Arche community is based on the principle that what they provide – love and belonging – are essentials of life for both those who come to help and those for whom the communities were created.

What is L'Arche?

L´Arche began as an offshoot of the Catholic Church but is now a model of ecumenism with Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim and other faiths plus a wide array of Christian denominations. Its fundamental principle is that all human beings are precious, that the weak have as much to give to the strong as the strong to the weak, and that each person can mutually develop their gifts in community, creating tangible hope for all humanity – indeed “a plan for humanity.”
