UMC.ORG NEWS AND MEDIA
Boomer Retirement is Looming: Are you Scared of Getting Old? Few want to admit it, but large groups of church members dread the thought of getting older. They seldom think of their later years as a rich time for spiritual growth. The truth is that crises of faith still occur, no matter how many years pass –– not just for you, but also for your aging parents and relatives. Check out this series of stories from Interpreter magazine and The Upper Room. Pay special attention to “Pilgrimage into the last third of life: 7 gateways to spiritual growth.” Writers Richard Morgan and Jane Marie Thibault offer inspiration and practical help to people who are trying to navigate through later life.
