Event Details

Somewhere around mid-life, gravity sets in. That mountain we’ve worked so hard to climb begins to crumble. We thought that we would have reached the summit by now, or at least an overlook on the way, where we would have a clearer view of the horizon, an assurance that we had risen above early-adult mix of over-confidence and confusion. We’ve learned how to perform pretty well. We’ve invested ourselves with achievement, acquisition of relationships and possessions and activities. We’ve been busy, and we have photos and resumés to prove it. We’re also tired, bored sometimes, despairing over our aches and pains or the loss of friends and loved ones who sheltered us earlier in our lives. We keep bumping into our limitations and our same-old mistakes. We wonder just where the next leg of our journey will take us. Where is God in this? Before, behind, above, beneath, within, without us. Tugging at us like gravity, teaching us how to fall into the freedom of grace.

You’re invited to attend a Day Apart on Friday, 10/11, 9:30-2:30 at CSUMC, where Rev. Claire Keene will lead us in exploring the spiritual gifts of living “over the hill.” Cost is $30 for materials and lunch. Space is limited. For reservations or more information contact Rev. Jan Wade by 10/7 at jbwade@churchstreetumc.org.

Scholarships are available.
