Pilgrimage into the Last Third of Life: 7 Gateways to Spiritual Growth by Jane Marie Thibault, Richard L Morgan

Do you dread growing old?

The last third of life, from age 60 on up, doesn’t have to be feared. When viewed from a Christian perspective, this season of life can be meaningful, endurable … and even joyful, say authors Jane Thibault and Richard Morgan.

Thibault and Morgan suggest approaching the Last Third as a pilgrimage—a journey full of purpose, ripe with opportunities for spiritual growth.

The authors, ages 65 and 82, dig deeply into the realities of their lives and give you 7 ways to open yourself to God and the abundant life God wants for you. They address 7 gateways to spiritual growth:
• Facing Aging and Dying
• Learning to Live with Limitations
• Doing Inner Work
• Living in and Out of Community
• Praying and Contemplation
• Redeeming Loss and Suffering
• Leaving a Legacy

This collection of scripture-based meditations will inspire you or someone you know to move fearlessly into the Last Third, looking forward to the opportunities this time of life can hold. The book includes reflection questions and can be used by individuals or groups for a 7-week study.
