Aging Matters Seminars

Every ten seconds someone in North America becomes a senior. This demographic reality has inspired both fear and hope. In these 3 seminars we will explore the challenges and opportunities of becoming a senior, including critical issues such as diminished energy, the search for significance, continuing to work after work, calling and service in the world and church. This series is designed to help those needing to address the issues of aging—whether seniors themselves or people working with seniors (e.g., pastors, counsellors, social workers)—from a Christian perspective. The issues of vocation, meaning and security, and spirituality will be explored through lectures, case studies, interviews and guests.

This series of three seminars may also be taken for academic credit (Sept 27, Oct 25, Nov 15, Dec 6). REGISTER FOR CREDIT or contact Associate Registrar Faith Knoll at fknoll@carey-edu.ca | 604.225.5901
