Omega course on the meaning of later life
Updated: Apr 14
How to handle the changes of later years with hope and dignity.
For all of us life is a journey. From the womb to the tomb, we journey through life creating relationships, forging memories and amassing possessions. The Bible says:
I will be your God throughout your lifetime – until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you Isaiah 46:4
For each one of us to continue to have a purpose and bear fruit is really important.
This course is designed to help us focus on the home straight and enable us to finish well.
Join a weekly 6-session, interactive course on Zoom including:
What does it mean to grow old?
How can I embrace the increasing changes in later life?
What do I have to look forward to?
What would I like on my tombstone?
What will be my legacy?

One of the great gifts of Christian spirituality is its encouragement to pause, take a moment for thought and to reflect deeply on what matters most. The Omega Course does just this: it creates a space for us to pause and to think about later life and the story we want to tell through our days. I commend it to you.
