“The Gift of Years” Book Study

July 28, 2021 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Remember that “winter break” we took for snowbirds and traveling back in 2020? Our three-month pause from conversations about Sr. Joan Chittister’s The Gift of Years (Growing Older Gracefully) turned into a pandemic lockout. But NEVER FEAR! We are ready to begin again this summer. We will switch to Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. beginning July 28. 

The readings from Sr. Joan’s book are designed around a variety of topics. Participants can read the suggested five to eight page sections on a daily basis. Each week we’ll watch a brief (new and improved!) video of Joan’s reflections and discuss this thought-provoking book among friends. (A transcript of each video is available if you must miss a session.) Folks from other congregations are welcome to join us.

If you plan to attend, please inform the office to add your name to the class roster for handouts.

Please read the sections focused on Joy (page 27), Newness (page 45), Relationships (page 79), Productivity (page 149) and Appreciation (page 207) before we gather on the 14th. Journal handouts will be available in the church office by June 27. If you have questions, contact Cinda Gorman.
