Most of us begin our conscious pursuit of God at a younger part of life. We become church members, we learn to pray, and our worship deepens. We attend classes and events where we add understanding to our faith. We volunteer and cook, we lead youth events, and set up lots of chairs and tables.
What changes as we age? How does our faith life adjust as we move into the last quarter of this life? And, how does our ministry - the way we serve God and others, change as we are not able to do the physical things we once did?
In the culture of the working world, retirement means the end of our careers and the significance we once had in our work life. But, it turns out that the work of our spiritual lives with Christ take on a very specific significance. And, it is a significance not only affecting us, but the life and mission of our churches, and in the legacy of a life with God we leave to our grandchildren.
The Spirituality of Aging is a discussion that will open us all to a new perspective of an often overlooked part of our faith.
