"A book for all seasons." -- Parker J. Palmer

"An invitation to more fully engage this stage of our journey and be enriched by it." -- Richard Rohr

From a writer, editor, and publisher in his eighth decade, Vesper Time addresses the yearning among elders for continued growth, expansiveness of heart, improvement of mind, and a meaningful understanding of our lives in our later years. As with Christianity's age-old practice of Vespers, an hour of prayer observed at the lighting of the lamps just before darkness descends, Frank Cunningham views this time as one when the colors begin to deepen and our experience of growing older becomes our spiritual practice.

With both wisdom and humor, Cunningham explores the five facets of this integral spirituality -- memory, intimacy, diminishment, gratitude, and acceptance. With a new Introduction and Discussion/Reflection Guide, Vesper Time provides expert guidance and gentle encouragement for those on this stage of their journey of life.
