A term coined by Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi to describe
the process of growing into wisdom and spiritual maturity as we advance in years.
Our culture has become very youth-oriented, leading many of us to fear getting older, slowing down, losing our place in the workings of the world. On Saturday, October 25 (9:00 a.m.—3:00 p.m.) and Sunday, October 26 (12:00—3:00 p.m.) a group of “women of a certain age” (in this case, over 60) will gather at St. Paul’s Ivy for a workshop to address the challenges and the possibilities of Eldering with Grace. This workshop/retreat is being jointly hosted by SPI and Emmanuel Church, Greenwood and is being led by Dona Wylie and a committee of women from both parishes. We are very excited about this opportunity for fellowship, sharing and learning and we hope that this experience will lead to an ongoing source of spiritual and social support for those experiencing the challenges and exploring the possibilities of their senior years.
We are still in the planning stages for this workshop, so we encourage you to watch your email and/or church bulletins for details in the coming weeks. Cost is $15 and includes lunch. If you have questions or would like to participate in the planning of this workshop, please contact Dona Wylie.
