Finding Meaning and Spirit in Aging

Every month on the third Friday from 1:00 to 2:30 PM
January 15, February 19, March 19, April 16, May 21, June 18, 2020

Co led by Claudia Sanders, Judie Rinerson and Rev. Anya Sammler-Michael, our journey together will traverse the stories and experiences of elders, offering insights into navigating this unique stage of life. Our core text, “In Later Years: Finding Meaning and Spirit in Aging” by Unitarian Universalist minister, Rev. Bruce Marshall, draws on scores of personal interviews, and provides a felt sense, grounded in real-life accounts, of the challenges and blessings of aging. Unlike many books on the topic, In Later Years: Finding Meaning and Spirit in Aging focuses particularly on older seniors—those in their late seventies, eighties, and nineties. The book also serves as an invaluable resource for family members and caregivers, suggesting ways to help, ways to connect, and ways to understand the issues that attend growing old. 

Every participant will want their own copy of the book. 

We will begin over Zoom, and may move to in-person as we are able. Participants are encouraged to read the first two chapters before we meet on January 15th.
