About the Author

Molly and Bernie Srode, a husband and wife team, began their spiritual journey early in life as a Catholic nun and priest respectively. Bernie served in local parishes and Molly taught in Catholic schools. After marrying, they joined forces to explore spirituality on a wider basis by studying the spiritual traditions of many different faiths. Molly served for ten years as a hospital chaplain. Now, as retirees, they devote their time to enriching the spiritual lives of other retirees by offering workshops and lectures across the United States.

Reviews

As Molly Strode observes, 'A ... retirement is a life-altering event for each person who goes through it. It is a new stage in life that touches every phase of a person's existence. It has physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences." Because this last phase of life is so imporlant, a book of spiritual advice for the transition u'ould be welcome not only to people contemplating retirement, but also for retirees who are having a hard time.Unfortunately, this is not the book. Although Molly Strode is a former Roman Catholic nun, her advice for retirees depends on a number of New Age beliefs like reincarnation that will be unhelpful to mainstream Episcopalians. Maybe the Church Pension Fund and its clergy wellness experts will produce a guide to spiritual retirement.--Doug Ousley "The Living Church " "Creating a Spiritual Retirement will serve as a valuable model for many who have arrived at a spiritual milestone, and who want to learn how to plan the rest of their journey. Strode is an excellent guide who knows how to point out important things on the side of the road that we might otherwise not notice, and she knows how to keep the real goals of our lives clearly in mind." Rabbi Jack Reimer, co-editor, So That Your Values Live On: Ethical Wills and How to Prepare Them A spiritual gem for retired persons. A hopeful, helpful guide.... If every retiree would take Molly Srode's insights and suggestions to heart, we would have a lot more wisdom and happiness in this world. Joyce Rupp, author, The Cosmic Dance and many other best-selling books This is a powerful book . A must-read for those wishing to enrich their 'later years and a highly recommended book for all ages. One of the best books I have read in a long, long time.
