Powerful Lessons to Living Agelessly
This program is based on the writing and research of Dr. Richard Johnson, founder of Senior Adult Ministry. You will learn the 12 essential “keys” of aging and spirituality that transform this time of life into an ageless soul-adventure. This is a seven-session course offered on Wednesday mornings from 9-10:30 a.m. on these dates in 2020:
Dr. Johnson tells us that aging is not a “thief in the night,” rather, aging is one of the three “masters teachers” of life (the other two being relationships and sickness). Learn how to completely refresh and renew your view of maturation (aging) from one of loss to one of “a crown of glory.”
You’ll learn the 12 essential “keys” of aging and spirituality that transform aging from a potentially dismal time, into an ageless soul-adventure. The course covers aging and spirituality: aging with grace, with verve, and spiritual meaning and purpose. This course is a life-changing experience … sure to completely transform the way you look at aging and spirituality … a real “shot in the arm” especially for those who may resist aging but who want to become spiritually ageless.
After four years of research, Dr. Johnson found these 12 keys were identified as the foundational principles of aging and spirituality letting us open-up to the special grace of our mature years, and taste life in abundance.
