Book study: The Gift of Years

by Joan Chittister

About the book: From the back cover – “The author invites us to embrace older age as a natural part of life that is both active and contemplative, productive and reflective, and deeply rewarding . . . The gift of these years is not merely being alive, it is the gift of becoming more fully alive than ever.”

The study meets on Thursdays, 4 to 5 p.m., using Zoom online conferencing. After an initial opening, participants move into discussion groups of 4 to 6 persons. Because each chapter of this book stands alone, new participants are welcome.
