Item description for Harvest Us Home: Good News As We Age by Rachel Callahan & Rea McDonnell...

In biblical tradition, the fiftieth year is a holy year, the year of jubilee. Jubilee is a time when Israel was to set captives free, return to one's homeland, recover and reclaim one's roots and family. Harvest Us Home proclaims good news for those in their fiftieth year and beyond, setting them free from old wounds and expectation, giving them hope for a fruitful future. Using imagery from nature, and drawing on psychology, contemporary spirituality and Scripture, Rachel Callahan and Rea McDonnell invite mature readers to tend themselves, their relationships, their memories and their future, in cooperation with the "gardner of God" who carefully tends and harvests al people. McDonnell and Callahan look to Jesus, the pioneer in all that it means to be fully human and fully alive, and to Mary, who lived through the joys and sorrows of a richly fruitful maturity. From the riches of Scripture they offer readers a vision of aging as a time of great wisdom and grace. They draw on contemporary books on aging, including sociological, psychological, medical and philosophical studies. They include poignant accounts of their own experience of aging, as well as the voices of others who write deeply and reflectively of their own journey through the later years of life. Harvest Us Home is a reflection on the good news of God's good work in each and every person. It offers readers the opportunity to make a prayer pilgrimage_savoring the mysteries of grace they have lived_and to learn about many of the aspects of aging that they are experiencing.

This book might also be used for small group sharing or discussion groups, especially in church settings.
