Fairlawn Avenue United Church
A five week study looking at the decades past our first five or six, and how we might discover our own way into the purpose and wonder that awaits us. (Zoom details will be provided to participants via email the day before each session.)
Based, in part, on three books –
How Did I get to Be 70 When I’m 35 Inside by Linda Douty
Falling Upwards – A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life by Richard Rohr
On the Brink of Everything by Parker J. Palmer
“Most of us are never told that we can set out from the known and the familiar to take on a further journey. Our institutions and our expectations, including our churches, are almost entirely configured to encourage, support, reward and validate the tasks of the first half of life. Shocking and disappointing, but I think it is true.
So many, if not most, of us settle for the brick and mortar of first-stage survival, and never get to what I call “the unified field” of life itself. As Bill Plotkin, a wise guide, puts it, many of us learn to do our “survival dance,” but we never get to our actual “sacred dance.”
Richard Rohr “Falling Upward”
