by Richard Rohr. Jossey-Bass, 2011.
Large falling upward

The message that “falling” is the way to spiritual growth can seem counterintuitive. Yet, in this small volume, priest and sage Richard Rohr argues that falling, or failure, is really the only way up. Comfortably traversing time and faith tradition, Rohr draws upon a range of sources ancient and contemporary, including his Franciscan community, to discuss the tasks of the two halves of life: the first, to build the container of our lives and the second, to fill it. Especially addressed to those in the second half, this book sheds light on the rich rewards of a life that is educated by hard knocks. Not just for Catholics, both Falling Upward and {{Falling Upward: A Companion Journal | http://www.amazon.com/Falling-Upward-Spirituality-Companion-Journal/dp/1118428560/?tag=centerforcong-20}}, are designed for use by individuals and small groups. These resources might be especially useful in ministries with older adults.
