Are People Feeling Lonely in Church?

Are you lonely? If you are, you are not alone. Rev Dr Tan Soo Inn, a panellist at the upcoming The Silent Pandemic: Loneliness in the Churches seminar, writes about the danger of loneliness found in today’s churches.

Rev Tan cites studies of urban church worshippers who found friendly believers in churches but not friends. This is coupled with the negative effect of loneliness being like that of obesity and smoking. Churches are gospel communities of those reconciled to God and to fellow man. How then do churches get their “relational act together” in addressing the issue of loneliness?

Henri Nouwen’s Spirituality of Integration, by Wil Hernandez

Some 60 participants attended the recent one-day seminar at EAST campus led by Dr Wil Hernandez who exposed all who came to an integrated spiritual life that Henri Nouwen (1932-1996) have sought to teach and exemplify through his life. It is the desire that we too can more intentionally endeavour to live a life of love in a way that impacts others and the world around us.

Dr Wil’s study and teaching on Henri Nouwen is reflected in the books the former has authored on the latter. Click on each book to find out more.

Seminar on Henri Nouwen: A Spirituality of Integration

Registration & Payment:

Enquiries:  phone 6291 9744 Ext 118 or email

Henri Nouwen is reckoned by many as one of the greatest spiritual writers of the last century whose continuing impact is felt cross-denominationally and globally. An author of more than 40 books, many of which were bestsellers worldwide, his writings focused on Christian spirituality–our life with God. Nouwen stayed faithful all the way with his missional thrust: to proclaim the gospel and how to flesh it out in our life.

Nouwen’s spirituality is a well-integrated spirituality–one that does not rigidly dichotomize spiritual concepts and methodologies in an “either-or” fashion but promotes a “both-and” mindset. His is a holistic spirituality that centers around the greatest commandment: loving God, loving neighbor and loving self–with its unified but intertwining inward, outward, and upward movements.

This one-day event aims at exposing us to an integrated spiritual life that Nouwen so embodied concretely with the hope that we too can more intentionally endeavor to live a life of love in a way that impacts others and the world around us. In this shared goal, Henri Nouwen stands as our reliable example and guide.
