On the Brink of Everything: by Parker J. Palmer
April 27 at 3:30 p.m. (8 week course)
Led by Dana Stewart, this study will begin on April 27th at 3:30 p.m. This is an 8 week course and is for anyone to attend.
Drawing on eight decades of life -- and his career as a writer, teacher, and activist -- Palmer explores the questions age raises and the promises it holds. "Old," he writes, "is just another word for nothing left to lose, a time to dive deep into life, not withdraw to the shallows."
But this book is not for elders only. It was written to encourage adults of all ages to explore the way their lives are unfolding. It's not a how-to-do-it book on aging, but a set of meditations in prose and poetry that turn the prism on the meaning(s) of one's life, refracting new light at every turn.
From beginning to end, the book is laced with humor as well as gravitas.
Richard Rohr wrote of this book: “ Our entire culture is deeply in need of true elders, and you can’t be one unless you have arrived there—chronologically, spiritually and intellectually.”

God calls us to a life that we could never imagine on our own.
Samuel, Esther, Jonah…they all lived pretty ordinary lives…until they didn’t. In Called, author Susan Robb shows us how God interrupts the lives of ordinary men and women, calling and empowering them to lives of service they never would have imagined on their own. And she shows us that the same God who called six of the Bible’s most iconic characters calls us, too, to bring hope and transformation to the world. Discover how to hear and respond to the unique call God is placing on your life in this six-week study.
