Inspired by Richard

The local library opened back up a few weeks ago after being closed due to Covid 19 I was able to pick up “Falling Upward” by Richard Rohr. It was slow treading at first maybe because I started reading it late one night and I was tired. But a few days later I picked it up again and I quickly fell in love with the insight and encouragement Richard offers us who are in the second half of life. Below is one excerpt to get you thinking:

“(In the second half of life) The eight beatitudes speak to you much more than the 10 Commandments. I have always wondered why people never want to put a stone monument of the eight beatitudes on the courthouse lawn” (Matthew 5:3-12)

After you read it, and I hope you do, I would like to hear what were your biggest takeaways. Thanks.
