Souls in Full Sail

A Christian Spirituality for the Later Years

We do not set out to become old. Far from it. We hard­ly intend even to become mid­dle-aged. Instead we plan to live in some eter­nal now which will lead on to some­thing bet­ter, some­thing more com­plete than what we had before… Some­time in our spir­i­tu­al trav­els, as a com­plete sur­prise, we notice it has become win­ter… This change has occurred, it seems, with­out prepa­ra­tion, with­out fair warning.”


So spir­i­tu­al­i­ty writer Emi­lie Grif­fin begins Souls in Full Sail, tak­ing us on an explo­ration of our lat­er years. It is a book filled with won­der­ful, rich sto­ry, care­ful­ly craft­ed spir­i­tu­al exer­cis­es and wis­dom from those who have gone before us. She explores relo­ca­tion, voca­tion­al changes, los­ing her moth­er, and nego­ti­at­ing and rene­go­ti­at­ing her rela­tion­ships with her grown children.

The jour­ney of our lat­er years is a won­drous voy­age, though tur­bu­lent at points. But it is, as Emi­lie reminds us, the jour­ney we have been prepar­ing for all along.
