We like to think of ourselves as creative, but how are we to accept retirement, ageing, illness and, ultimately, death? Sister Anke shows us that such experiences of diminishment also have their own potential for creativity. There is no sentimental evasion of the hard facts, but a personal testimony that experiences of diminishment, willingly accepted, can bring us to renewal of life 'in the depths, where there is resurrection'.
