The Gift of Years: Growing Old Gracefully by Joan Chittister is a moving book that invites us to cherish the blessings of aging and overcome its challenges. In other words, to age well and not just grow old. In 40 short passages she has written about the life issues that emerge with age, issues such as solitude, wisdom, sadness, outreach, forgiveness and loneliness. It is a compendium of wisdom for all who want to live a full, centered, and purposeful life in their aging years.
You are invited to participate in a discussion group on the relevancy of some of the book’s passages for your own life and the lives of others. It will be held at the Dummerston Center Church for six sessions every otber Wedneday starting September 11 from 1:30 to 2:30. At each session we will read one passage from the book and reflect on its meaning for us. You will not need to have your own copy of the book but copies will be available to borrow or buy at a reduced price.
