Older adulthood is a time to take stock of one’s journey and to affirm that which is of most importance. It can be a rich time in the lives of adults- a time when we are often open to new learning and discovery, a time of deepening friendships and relationships, a time of theological reflection as we explore questions of meaning and purpose. It can be a time when adults discern the dimensions of the legacy they will someday leave behind- spiritual gifts, loving relationships, tangible assets, and ethical wills. Most older adults face the physical realities of aging and the emotional and spiritual realities of loss and grief at some point along the way. While many older adults are active participants in familiar organizations, communities, and congregations, for some this is a challenge.
Here you will find resources to support the older adult journey, whether you are an older adult yourself, a caregiver or family member, or part of a congregation engaged in ministry to and with older adults. If you have suggestions for additions to programming for older adults at Tree of Life, contact our president elect or the office.
