WHAT ARE THE TOPICS?
Successful Aging – Taking advantage of our later years to bring glory to God in every area of life – physical, mental, social, financial, emotional and spiritual.
Challenges of Aging – Aging isn't for cowards! Many challenges await – including pain and suffering, losses of many of the blessings we enjoy in this life, depression, disease, and death itself.
Finishing Well – Letting go of the things and values of this life as we embrace our eternal future is critical to coming to the end of life well. It also requires an appropriate use of medical care.
