Book Recommandation

On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity and Getting Old, by Parker Palmer (2018)

This is a book – a little book – that evokes gratitude, offers wisdom, and helps bring to memory those forgotten gems we perhaps undervalued in our life story. He includes poetry – mostly his own – that seems to fit exactly. He gives hints and suggestions; he encourages the reader to try these but also to identify their own helps. “The older we get,” he says, “the more our lives are enriched by lessons we weren’t ready to learn when we were young.” Parker is eighty now, and a truly gifted teacher. He holds strong political views and is unapologetic in passing them on. Richard Rohr has stated, “Our entire culture is in need of true elders, and you can’t be one until you have arrived there –chronologically, spiritually and intellectually.” Here’s a man who has arrived, with another book that’s a generous gift to all of us.
