Falling Upward?

Home » News » Falling Upward?

This Saturday 22nd July, we will be discussing Falling Upward by Father Richard Ruhr. A Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province, he is the founder of the Centre for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is also the author of over 20 books and an internationally known speaker.
From 2pm, we will be discussing what we make of the book's claim that the heartbreaks, disappointments and first loves of life are actually stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half of life has in store for us. If you want to join in the chat or just listen over a cuppa, you will be made very welcome.
