About this title


How long does it take to grow a soul, to love and to be loved, and to help repair the world? One lifetime, so it is best to be totally engaged in the process. Growing Up Absorbed follows the journey from cradle to grave through an education focus. There are no shortcuts in this spiritual pilgrimage. It can be hard, but we are companioned along the way. What happens is what Gilbert calls "spiritual osmosis" absorbing what the world has to teach us and passing on what we have learned: an absorbing business. Within these covers lies a history of religious education in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, with reflections on faith development in the 21st century. Beginning with Walt Whitman's poem "A Child Went Forth" as a metaphor, the author concludes with life questions that "empty the room" He finds the journey has its valleys, plateaus and mountain peaks, and is no casual matter. Gilbert shares his excitement on making the journey.

About the Author:

Richard S. Gilbert writes books of meditations while sharing his perspective on social justice and religious education. A retired Unitarian Universalist minister, he holds degrees from St. Lawrence University, Meadville/Lombard Theological School, Starr King School for Ministry and Colgate Rochester Divinity School. For over a half-century Gilbert has ministered to people of all ages. Here he shares life wisdom gained through experiences of growing values, meanings and convictions. The author views "retirement" as just one more opportunity to be absorbed in life. Richard and Joyce Gilbert live in Rochester, NY, where they enjoy time with their three grandchildren.
