Based on Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, Joan Chittister's For Everything A Season reflects on the many seasons of life from "A Time to Be Born" to "A Time To Die," and everything in-between. As you meditate on the human experiences common to all, but lived out uniquely, you'll come to appreciate how human fulfillment and true happiness come from valuing what we have - friendships, laughter, sorrow, compassion - all gifts from God.
Through the famous verses of Ecclesiastes, Joan Chittister reflects on timeless themes: the purpose and value of human life, the balance of joy and sorrow, work and rest, love and loss. In meditating on the contrasting seasons of our lives, she shows how human fulfillment and true happiness come, not from getting and having more and more, but from knowing and valuing what we have. Friendship and laughter, patience and sorrow, humility and compassion, from birth through death all these are God's gifts to us, the precious moments of life itself.
