Summer Book Group: “Falling Upward”
July 10, 2017, 9:00 am - 10:30 am
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, repeating until August 7, 2017
Summer Book Group in July: “Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life” by Richard Rohr: “There is much evidence on several levels that there are at least two major tasks to human life. The first task is to build a strong ‘container’ or identity; the second is to find the contents that the container was meant to hold. The first task we take for granted as the very purpose of life, which does not mean we do it well. The second task, I am told, is more encountered than sought…” (p.xiii)
On four Mondays in July, we gather to informally discuss this book about the Christian spiritual life by acclaimed writer Richard Rohr of the Center for Action & Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. One of Rohr’s guiding paradigms is that of “falling.” Ongoing spiritual growth is most often experienced when we are open to our life’s challenges, rough edges, lack of control, mistakes, and suffering. Always, Rohr’s emphasis is on spiritual depth and joy.
The group has decided to extend their run of sessions by one week, so the remaining dates are:
Mondays, July 31 AND August 7, from 1 to 2:30 pm in the North Room.
