Jubilee is a time when Israel was to set captives free, return to ones homeland, recover and reclaim ones roots and family. Harvest Us Home proclaims good news for those in their fiftieth year and beyond, setting them free from old wounds and expectations, giving them hope for a fruitful future.Using imagery from nature, and drawing on psychology, contemporary spirituality and Scripture, Rachel Callahan and Rea McDonnell invite mature readers to tend themselves, their relationships, their memories and their future, in cooperation with the gardener God who carefully tends and harvests all people. From the riches of Scripture they offer readers a vision of aging as a time of great wisdom and grace. They draw on contemporary books on aging, including sociological, psychological, medical and philosophical studies. They include poignant accounts of their own experience of aging, as well as the voices of others who write deeply and reflectively of their own journey through the later years of life.
