    Richard M. Morgan's 2006 book SETTLING IN: MY FIRST YEAR IN A RE

    Richard M. Morgan's 2006 book SETTLING IN: MY FIRST YEAR IN A RETIREMENT COMMUNITY is not easy to review. Why?  Because a reader not already familiar with Reverend Morgan's pastoral career among the aging tends to expect an objective, secular sketch reporting on a certain kind of retirement community called, for short, CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community).  ***  Instead the unsuspecting reader finds autobiography, memoir, the personal agonies and triumphs of author Morgan. Now clearly Dr Morgan knows a lot professionally and religiously about aging Christians. Suddenly he confronts the issue of moving into an affordable western Pennslyvania facility managed by  Redstone Presbyterian SeniorCare. Professional detachment almost instantly yields to subjective personal panic! Presbyterian minister and much published author Richard Lyon Morgan had grown up in Eastern Pennsyvlania, but then spent 50 years in warm North Carolina. Now he moves to the cold north of unfamiliar Western Pennsylvania to be near a married daughter and her family. How this experience affects Richard Morgan's soul is what SETTLING IN is about. There is much prayer, personal meditation and shared and recommended spiritual. But But the book offers only minuscule objective reporting on CCRCs.  ***  Read this book for its uncontestable spiritual insights. Read Bernice Hunt for objective description of Continuous Care Retirement Communities.  -OOO-
