Often in our youth obsessed society, age is viewed as a negative, especially for women, and we sometimes start to believe that it is. Phooey! Women of St. Simon’s, come for a discussion of Joan Chittister’s book, The Gift of Years on Wednesday, September 5 at 1 p.m. in the parish hall. Library Journal says, “Chittister beautifully downplays regrets and accents the rewards of a mature life…she focuses on the new beginnings that life can offer at this stage.” Helen Prejean says, “The Gift of Years brims with insight, pluck, verve, and courage—and trust that finally in God’s love ‘all will be well’”. Jane will lead the discussion on September 5 and those gathered can decide if they are interested in additional sessions. Bring a friend, and a sack lunch, too. If you want to preview the book, Jane has a copy in her office.
