Many adults feel left behind or out of control in their later years, exhausted from years of holding tightly to deep wounds and fast-paced living. In addition, these adults still face new challenges like health problems, changing family situations, or death of peers and loved ones. Seniors confront mortality in a way that younger generations need not. Is aging just a bunch of bad news? Absolutely not!
This ten-session Bible study course will encourage you to share your unique story and answered prayers with others. It will also show you how to use this time to grow closer to God by practicing deepening quiet and contemplation, readying yourself for the new and unexpected vision he may impart. It reminds you that keeping eternity in view helps us to accept tough transitions with serenity. Remember, this is not a time to merely exist, but a time to grow and bloom, aging in grace. God is with you every step of the way.
