Gracious Uncertainty

Gracious Uncertainty: Faith in the Second Half of Life reflects on issues that concern everyone but intensify as we grow older-loving more fully, dealing with loss, finding consolation, and having the courage to gaze (even while shaking inwardly) at the nearing reality of death. Author Jane Sigloh, a retired Episcopal priest and popular speaker, is a guide both witty and wise. She blends personal stories, Scriptural insights, and lessons drawn from years in ministry into insightful reflections on the beauty and challenges of aging. The essays in Gracious Uncertainty are intimate, at times humorous, and often spirit-provoking guides through the unknowns of the later years.

About the Author

Jane Sigloh is a retired Episcopal priest who lives in Crozet, Virginia. She is the author of Like Trees Walking: In the Second Half of Life, and a beloved speaker on topics of faith and aging.


Jane Sigloh validates the statement, "God made human beings, because he loves stories." Her stories and reflections are personal, but as Carl Rogers says, "that which is most personal is most universal." Jane's memories and reflections are woven into a practical theology, and they are a sound basis to finding a footing in life's second half. In this book, Jane Sigloh extends a certain graciousness to the reader.--J. Pittman McGehee, Episcopal priest, Jungian analyst, and author of The Invisible Church: Finding Faith Where You Are Jane Sigloh is a woman of faith who can turn a phrase into poetry. In Gracious Uncertainty, she exudes a childlike naivete in God's creative embrace. Sigloh rests comfortably in the divine realm of ambiguity, a place where doubt strengthens faith. Her belief in the marvels of new physics strengthens foundational science where discovery lends relevance to scripture. Sigloh's theology above all bespeaks an elevated consciousness of awe and wonder.--Randall B. Robertson, founding director, GladdeningLight This book is gracious indeed, and very helpful amid all the puzzlements of getting older. It will strengthen and delight not only those of us well into the second half of life, but also the next generation--perhaps these pages will help them make sense of us!--Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, Episcopal priest, head of The Geranium Farm, and author of The Courage to Grow Old Jane Sigloh's Gracious Uncertainty seems like a sure bet to me. She has the wisdom that comes (if lucky) "at a certain age," but a youthful spirit that doesn't settle for received wisdom or a stock response. She investigates experience across her own lifetime to share both what she has come to understand and what remains a mystery. The Bible is her companion throughout but by no means her only inspiration. Best of all, she makes you want to keep better track of yourself. God may be beyond knowing, but what are the hints and guesses that come to us if, like her, we pay attention to our lives?--Peter S. Hawkins, Yale Divinity School
