Older adulthood is a season of many changes, including increased flexibility, the capacity for broadened thinking, and joy. This workshop will suggest that Christian vocation in older adulthood means remembering God and being remembered by God. It will show how the changes of aging are not just conditions of loss but opportunities for spiritual transformation, including the giving and receiving of help in the activities of daily life.
