Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Given the aging character of our culture, the absence of books on aging and spirituality is rather amazing. Teacher and workshop leader Wiebe sets out to fill this void in her set of reflections on crossing the border from middle years into the older years. Wiebe challenges those on this journey across the border to look within themselves for a sense of purpose and to engage themselves in service to the larger culture as a means of spiritual survival. Her final chapter includes an enlivening creed of affirmation for the older adult. A wonderful book that addresses an important and neglected audience; highly recommended.
