Inspired by one of Richard Rohr’s most popular books, Falling
Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life, this issue of Oneing
features articles and poems that reflect the journey from the
first half of life to the second and the liminal period in between: the
struggles and challenges of the first half of life, the transition into the
second half of life, and the experiences of both in preparation to fully
embrace the “further journey.”

In Falling Upward, Rohr helps us to understand the tasks of the
two halves of life and teaches us that those who have failed, or gone
down, are the only ones who can really understand the meaning of
“up.” Those who have somehow fallen, and fallen well, are the only
ones who can grow spiritually and not misuse “up.” In the words of
Rohr’s favorite English mystic, Julian of Norwich (1343–1416), “First
the fall, and then the recovery from the fall, and both are the mercy
of God.”
