LENTEN BOOK STUDY
Karen Peeler and Jean Cotting would like to invite parishioners to join them in a Lenten study of Richard Rohr's book, FALLING UPWARD: A SPIRITUALITY FOR THE TWO HALVES OF LIFE, beginning the first week of Lent, March 5 (Ash Wednesday) and continuing till Easter, April 20.
Fr. Rohr is a Franciscan priest and founder of the Center for Action and Compassion in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is the author of numerous books and an internationally known speaker and journalist. In FALLING UPWARD (which comes with workbook) Fr. Rohr offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries: how our failings can be the foundation for our on-going spiritual growth. Drawing on the wisdom from time-honored sacred and secular texts, the author explores the two halves of life, and takes us on a journey to understand how the disappointments, heartbreaks, and losses of life actually are stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half of life has in store for us.
This will be a lay-led study and discussion. We will meet on Sunday evening March 2 at 7:00 pm in the church library to organize further sessions; books and workshops will be ordered for those wishing to participate.
If you have questions or interest in being a part of this study group, please contact Karen Peeler (614-668-6271; firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jean Cotting (614-561-1488; email@example.com)
