Additionally, our social contacts and relationships may gradually decrease in numbers, as friends move away, or we relocate to be closer to family. We also lose some significant relationships through death. In the face of these voluntary and involuntary losses, what is our response? What can we aspire to, in the face of loss and new opportunities?

Join Dr Bob Stecker and MaryBeth Smith at Adult First Day School on 7/23 for the next in the monthly series of conversations, "Journey to Elderhood." We explore the joys and challenges of becoming "chronologically enhanced." This week, we will consider the following queries:
As you stand a ways off, on the brink, or in the midst of Elderhood, how do you imagine yourself being in service as an elder?
What gifts do you now perceive and/or appreciate about being an elder?
What gifts do you bring to the community as an elder?
All are welcome to gather for our ever-lively discussion at 9:20 a.m. in the Meeting House.
