Falling Upward

The football manager's cliché, that 'it was a game of two halves', is relevant to our next Good Faith Book Club's choice, Falling Upward: A spirituality for the two halves of life.' It's globally recognised ecumenical Franciscan monk author Father Richard Rohr believes that we grow spirituality more by doing it wrong than by doing it right. The book "takes us on a journey to give 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 life has in store for us."

We will see if we are persuaded at our next meeting on Saturday 22nd July between 2-4pm. You are invited to have a read and come along and share your thoughts with us. To read more about the book and some reviews, click here.
