Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

Wednesdays 7 p.m. Feb. 17 – April 7

What are the tasks of the two halves of life?  We think the second half of life is about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of life. The thesis of this book is the opposite. What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as “falling upward.”  It is not a loss but a gain, as we have all seen with elders who have come to their fullness.

Fr. Richard Rohr is a Franciscan priest in New Mexico and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque. The class is drop-in friendly, but you’ll benefit most by reading ahead of time and coming to as many classes as you can.  Facilitated by Rev. Sam.

Purchase the Falling Upward book on your own: Buy on Amazon  Buy on Barnes and Noble    If buying the book is a hardship, complimentary copies are available from Rev. Sam.

Contact: RevSam@orlandouu.org for class reading schedule and registering.
