Shortly afer becoming Chair of the Birmingham District of the Methodist Church, Donald Eadie was told that he had a degenerative disc disease. Following three major operations, he was forced to retire and face the letting go of identity and role, feelings of marginalisation and loss of meaning and purpose. He was accompanied by the Jesuit priest, Gerard Hughes, who pointed out that the borderlands are places of exploration and discovery, the new centre. Donald Eadies experienced this as being a journey into the heart of things. There were also new companions too, and further major, surgical operations and severe physical limitations. In this book, Eadie reflects over losses prompted by his illness to explore their transforming impact within a wide variety of thresholds, including the basement of a textile factory; the experience of being adopted; a classroom of children; living with a body which knows both pleasure and pain, and more. THese insights were gained through dark and difficult experiences, where, even there, there were enriching truths to be found. He includes an Epilogue and a Eucharistic liturgy that explores 'the faith journey of impaired pilgrims' and other resources.
