“It is not how old you are, but how you are old.” Jules Renard

As you consider your retirement years and grasp the reality of growing older, this day of reflection will explore the benefits and joys as well as the challenges and concerns ahead. How do we live this stage of our life well and see aging as a blessing?

Discover how we can share our Spirit-given gifts, talents, and experience in new ways that bring joy to ourselves and others and give continued meaning and purpose to our lives.
