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.

This course is led by Mary Anona Stoops and is provided by Lifelong Learning at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, GA. This is an online course and is asynchronous in delivery; participants will not be required to log on at specific times.
