Falling Upward

Falling Upward by Richard Rohr
A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

I bought this book hoping to ease the struggles of my mid-life crises. Good stuff here:

  • pg. xvii - churches validating first-half of life activities
  • pg. 7 - same as above
  • pg. 11 - change and growth programmed into our spirituality
  • pg. 13 - true God experience is always too much
  • pg. 80 - churches crucifying Jesus again and again...
  • pg. 98 - religion's job to teach us and guide us to find true self AND the goodness of the Gospel
  • pg. 101 - exclusion equals hellish and lonely existence
  • pg. 102 - the unconditional love of Jesus versus the conditional love of Jesus???
  • pg. 121 - living simply so others can simply live
  • pg. 124 - "the best criticism of the bad is the practice of the better"
