The Gift of Years: Growing Older Gracefully
10-week email study led by Harold Putt
This book is a series of 40 four- to six-page essays. Each essay covers not just “growing older gracefully,’” but also some aspect of the meaning of life itself. While discussing both the joys and challenges of aging, Chittister encourages readers to discover the deep spiritual meaning that can come with older age. The study will begin the week of Sept. 6 and continue through the week of Nov. 8. Each week, participants will be asked to read and reflect on four of the essays and be invited to share with the group, via email, their thoughts on one or more of the readings.
