9 am Reflection Group: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life
Sunday, February 12, 2023
Join Rev. Jane in studying Richard Rohr’s book: Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life. Rohr explains that the journey to spiritual maturity requires us to honor the needs of the first half of life, identity formation and security, while providing room to move into the second half of life where we grow in wisdom. Often this journey looks like falling down, making mistakes, loss of control and moving outside of our comfort zone. Rohr teaches that our failings can be the foundation of our ongoing spiritual growth.
No reading necessary – we will share passages and ideas and share in conversation together.
Falling Upward explains why the second half of life can and should be full of spiritual richness, offers a new view of how spiritual growth happens, how loss is gain. This important book explores the counterintuitive message that we grow spiritually much more by doing wrong than by doing right–a fresh way of thinking about spirituality that grows throughout life.
