Vocational discernment, says R. Paul Stevens, is a lifelong process — and it takes on even more significance in later life. In Aging Matters Stevens argues that our calling does not end with formal retirement; to the contrary, he maintains that we do well to keep on working, if possible, till life’s end.
Stevens delves into matters of calling, spirituality, and legacy in retirement, showing that we must continue to discern our vocation as we grow older in order to remain meaningfully engaged for the rest of our lives. He reframes “retirement” as a time of continued calling and productivity and points to biblical wisdom about turning aging into an extraordinarily fruitful season of life.
Aging Matters offers older readers informed perspective, guidance, hope — and a powerful Christian vision for personal and spiritual growth.
