Fall Book Reflection (Session 4)

Fall Book Reflection

SACRED FIRE: A Vision For A Deeper Human And Christian Maturity

by Father Ron Rolheiser

Father Ron Rolheiser invites us as mature adults to dive deep into our spiritual lives and reflect upon these questions: “How can I give my life away more purely and more meaningfully? How do I live beyond my own heartaches, headaches, and obsessions so as to help make other peoples’ lives more meaningful?”

“How can we live less self-centered, more mature lives? What constitutes deep maturity and how do we reach that place?…This book will try to answer those questions. It will try to be true to what its subtitle promises: A Vision for a Deeper Human and Christian Maturity.”

Through quiet reflection and rich conversation, we’ll contemplate the challenging questions and stories Rolheiser shares and, in the words of poet Rainer Maria Rilke, “Live the questions now.”

Clear, compelling, and challenging.
