We will be studying Richard Rohr’s Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life. In this book “Fr. Richard Rohr seeks to help readers understand the tasks of the two halves of life and to show them that those who have fallen, failed, or “gone down” are the only ones who understand “up.” Most of us tend to think of the second half of life as largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of life, but the whole thesis of this book is exactly the opposite. What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as “falling upward.” In fact, it is not a loss but somehow actually a gain, as we have all seen with elders who have come to their fullness. Rohr explains why the second half of life can and should be full of spiritual richness.” The book will be available at Darvill’s on Tuesday December 11.
