Still Green and Growing
Number of pages: 176
Spiritual growth does not wane with physical growth. In fact, it's never too late to connect faith with a life lived to the fullest. Unlike in the first half of our lives, when we are preoccupied with making a living and name for ourselves, in our second half of life we are actually less encumbered to opening ourselves to the process of self-emptying (kenosis) and divination (theosis).
Living out the second half of life himself, Archbishop Emeritus Sylvain Lavoie OMI matches biblical and incarnational spirituality with a wisdom garnered from personal experience of dealing with reality - the good and the bad - to present us with a practical spirituality for growing old with zeal, love, and intimacy. By becoming self-aware, self-accepting, learning to forgive and to embrace redemptive suffering, we can achieve our human potential and maximize wellness. Complete with reflection questions at the end of each chapter, this book is sure to set your spiritual journey on fire.Sylvain Lavoie
