This Thursday, February 25th, Fr. Tom Seitz will be leading discussions on the book Falling Upward, by Richard Rohr. Here is what Fr. Tom says about the book:
I chose this book because it explains how our spiritual journey as human beings changes as we move from the first half of life to the second half of life. Richard Rohr, the author, is grounded in the Bible and our rich Christian heritage. He writes in a way that is also accessible to those with little or no grounding in the Christian faith as well as to those who are lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ. I found this book particularly helpful in allowing me to let go of the important aims and functions of the first half of life in order to welcome and embrace the unique challenges of the second half of life. Wherever we are on our journey, this book will help us better relate to our neighbors, wherever they may be in their walk with the Lord.
The book discussion will be held at two separate times: 12:00 and 5:30. Both sessions will be in Park Avenue Christian Bookstore, located at 218 E Park Ave. Coffee and refreshments will be served. Visitors do not need to have read the book prior to the discussion, although the books will be available at a discount for the event.
