Can You Drink the Cup?

Overview


"Can you drink the cup…?" Jesus asked this question of his friends James and John (Matthew 20:20-23). It is this question, explains our spiritual guide Henri Nouwen, that "has the power to crack open the hardened heart and lay bare the tendons of the spiritual life."

Nouwen uses the cup as a metaphor to articulate the basic postures of the spiritual life: holding, lifting and drinking.

Overview


"Can you drink the cup…?" Jesus asked this question of his friends James and John (Matthew 20:20-23). It is this question, explains our spiritual guide Henri Nouwen, that "has the power to crack open the hardened heart and lay bare the tendons of the spiritual life."

Nouwen uses the cup as a metaphor to articulate the basic postures of the spiritual life: holding, lifting and drinking.

The cup is a powerful image in our human experience. We use cups in our celebrations of a variety of events. Nouwen reminds us that we also use the cup as a symbolic vessel—for sorrow, joy, blessings, salvation. "Drinking our cup to the bottom is seen as the expression of the full freedom of the sons and daughters of God," Nouwen writes. His goal is to make the question Jesus posed to James and John pierce our hearts so that a personal answer can emerge from it.

The way we answer Jesus' question, "Can you drink the cup…?" has the power to radically change our lives.

    MUCH MORE INSIGHT THAN YOU WOULD IMAGINE

    This is a well written, easy to read, lesson about life. Set aside the 'communion' lesson for this book. This is not all about communion. This book asks the question Are You Ready to Live? It tells how one can see, experience, and take life for everything it has to offer, good and not so good, and prepares the reader for it. Will you gulp life and miss out on much of it? Will you sip, appreciate, and experience? This is a MUST READ and one I will read again and again.

    Communion has never been the same...

    Since finding this little book quite by accident in an abby in the coastal foothills of Oregon in 2001, the experience of communion has not been the same since. As with most of Nouwen's writings, there may not be many pages, but the economy of paper allows the profound, rich, thoughtful, life-transforming messages to keep expanding throughout one's soul. Before anyone tastes the bread and wine again, they need to read this book...and the impact of the tastes and the action of holding, lifting and drinking the cup will never be the same for the rest of one's life. I could not recommend it more highly.
