Wayfinding for Seniors Returns!
Wednesday, May 18, 9:30 am – 11:30 am
This is a special invitation for you to join us next Wednesday May 18 at Orchard ridge UCC in Friendship Hall if you see yourself as a “senior,” for a chance to reconnect and envision our future.
Going forward, we’ll be narrowing the focus of Wayfinding to address the spiritual aspects of aging and end of life — i.e., the very real challenges of getting older, the spiritual qualities that help meet these challenges, useful spiritual resources, and how we make sense of it all.
For the fall we’re envisioning a series of “cafe-style” meetups on a regular basis. They will provide a chance to connect around specific issues and gain strength for our journeys.
On May 18 we’ll begin with inquiry. Julia would like to know: What are the spiritual tasks of aging as you experience them? Are you finding new wisdom (or humor!) as part of aging? What are the unique challenges elders face? (Of course being a 65-yr-old is quite different from being a 90-yr-old, so “senior/elder” encompasses a range of things.) We’ll use this input to further plan our cafes for 2022-23.
You may have seen this event referred to on our calendar and announcements as “Death Cafe,” – and while “death cafe” is a wonderful national movement where people drink tea and talk about death with candor, it is ultimately not what we are focusing on for our initial gathering. We want to discuss the spiritual tasks around aging and the elder years, and facing death is certainly one of these, but not the only one. Sorry if this misnomer in our announcements and calendar caused any confusion.
Date: Wednesday, May 18. Time 9:30-11:30. Place: ORUCC Fellowship Hall.
