Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

by Richard Rohr

 Come one, come all....for adults of all ages in Classroom 1

   "With rare insight, Rohr takes us on a journey to give us an understanding of how the heartbreaks, disappointments, and first loves of life are actually stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half of [our spiritual life] has in store for us."

 "Falling Upward calls for the promise within us and frees us to follow it into the wider dimensions of our spiritual authenticity.  This 'second half of life' need not wait till our middle years.  It emerges whenever we are ready and able to expand beyond the structures and strictures of our chosen path...With Richard Rohr as a guide, ...this mystery can become as real and immediate as your hand on the doorknob."---Joanna Macy, author of World as Lover, World as Self

 We are discussing "the ways in which in the first half of our spiritual journey we may be preoccupied with establishing our identity....but eventually we need to see ourselves in a different and more life giving way"--Richard Rohr

 This course incorporates some video excerpts and study questions, available in Classroom 1 or in the church office.  You can buy the book on Amazon, if you'd like, but it's not necessary as there are multiple copies available to consult or copy.  Please see the link below for the study guide:
