Abundant Aging … Grow Whole…not Old!

Are you living the abundant life that Jesus promised?  If you are in, or about to enter the “second half of life,” please join us for a retreat to explore how you might claim your rightful place among the “new elders.”  Inspired Christians regard the second half of life as a gift, in which they are invited to grow “whole–not old.”

This practical retreat will show you a new model for living this time in your life with vitality, intentionality, and joy, so that you will live your life on purpose and leave the legacy you choose.  Through inspiring stories and thought-provoking exercises, we will explore four important questions for our journey:

Who am I? – Where do I belong? – What do I care about? – What is my purpose?

When: July 14, 8:15 am – 4:30 pm; July 15, 10:15 am – noon

Where:    Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 1200 N Campbell Ave, Tucson, AZ 85719   (520) 327-6521 Held in the Koch Chapel/Patio Room; Activity Building

Register: Email RSVP to richard@spiritinthedesert.org  DEADLINE is JULY 5 – Register today!
