Item Description...
Overview
Every person has a personal story - a story as big and beautiful as the universe itself. And each of our personal stories is an essential chapter in the Big Story. We are told that life's story begins from elements released into space at the death of a star. But what about our destiny? Does that speck of stardust also hold within it a "spark of God"? Is life evolving toward levels of consciousness that we cannot yet even imagine? This is a book full of questions to inspire deeper thinking. It invites you to participate in an age-old conversation about our origins and our destiny. It encourages you to think about what it might mean to become fully and truly human - and to discover your own response to that perpetual question.

Publishers Description
A story is growing inside of you. . . a story as beautiful and as mysterious as the universe itself. And your personal story is an essential chapter in the Big Story. We are told that the story of life begins with elements released into space at the death of a star. But what about our destiny? Does that speck of stardust also hold within it a "spark of God"? Is life evolving toward levels of consciousness that we cannot yet even imagine? Roots and Wings is a book full of questions to inspire deeper thinking. It invites you to participate in an age-old conversation about our origins and our destiny. It encourages you to think about what it might mean to become fully and truly human -- and to discover your own response to that perpetual question. In Roots and Wings Margaret Silf deftly brings science and spirituality together, allowing a bold new synthesis to emerge between them.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Mind opening  Dec 16, 2008
After reading this book I feel much more able to be a grandparent because it talks about life in verbal images and Silf is a master at telling stories that open your mind to the possibilities one can achieve.
 
From Earth to Stardust  Sep 14, 2007
After a breathless whirl through the universe story, the author brings us back to planet Earth with very personal and pointed questions addressed to the reader. These are not all tidily collected at the ends of chapters, but interspersed throughout the text in such a way that they cannot easily be ignored. She shows how creation's interplay of chaos and ordering is reflected in our lives, and helps us learn from the ruins of our hopes. Using anecdotes from her own life, Silf makes her insights tangible and invites us to explore, rather than try to explain our own life story. Brief focused chapters make the book especially useful for those whose reading time is fragmented, yet each chapter offers ample food for further reflection.
While the first part of this refreshing book helps us nurture good roots, the latter part con-tains flying lessons. Familiar Gospel stories are retold from a new perspective, with one of the participants in the story as narrator. Mary Magdalene, trying to cling to Jesus after his resurrec-tion, is told, "We can't ever go back. The way leads only forward. Don't hang on to the past.... The future has such gifts for us, but we can't receive them unless we move on with empty hands." This is a book full of hope, urging us to both dig deeper and soar higher.
