“Long life is not a curse but a gift. And the gift is one of time.”
So what are all these extra years for? We live in extraordinary times. Most people come to the end of their professional, business or other paid employment in their late fifties or early 60s, and yet they have potentially 25-30+ years of healthy life ahead of them.
In this webinar, Prof Wyatt will explore what it means to live a life of fruitful Christian service into our 90s, how we can navigate the transitions which life forces on us in the final years, and how the local church can support and encourage its senior members.
