Spiritual Formation and Older Adults

February 11–March 17, 2021

The last third of life presents some of life’s richest spiritual, theological and ethical challenges. The journey of aging passes through both stable periods and times of transition which include pressing questions related to identity, leaving a legacy, loss of relationships, role in family and community, and facing diminishment and death.

A primary concern of the aging process is, “How will we live generatively into the reality of increased loss and diminishment?” This course will explore how congregations and other communities of faith can engage in conversations and practices that will allow them to actively nurture spiritual formation into older adulthood.

February 1–March 5, 2021

An Online Exploration led by Guy Sayles

Monday, November 30  |  2:00 p.m. (EST)











Our celebrations of the Advent-Christmas season will no doubt be different and difficult this year. Pandemic restrictions on gatherings of all kinds and concerns about travel will move some cherished traditions online and make others impossible.  No crowded sanctuaries on Christmas Eve with worshipers holding candles and singing “Silent Night” and no fellowship halls jammed with church members sitting around tables, sharing hot chocolate, hearing Christmas memories, dreams and stories, and singing beloved carols. We’re also approaching Christmas with the ongoing anxieties of a conflicted presidential transition, still-urgent issues of racial justice, and uncertain economic conditions.

What themes, insights and practices can church leaders offer to nurture joy and hope, in ourselves and the people we serve, in this bleak midwinter?

Join Guy Sayles for an exploration of this question via Zoom.  Join Zoom Meeting:
