Spiritual Lessons for the Journey of Aging
Aging doesn’t take much effort — all you have to do is breathe. Aging faithfully is different. It requires intentional effort to stay focused on God as you make your way through a world of youth and change.
Many women dread aging and resist thinking about it. Yet God designed the human body to change over time, and growing older is part of God’s plan. How we handle the changes that accompany aging reveals much about our spiritual maturity.
In her latest book, Beach Calling: A Devotional Journal for the Middle Years and Beyond, Missy Buchanan takes a fresh approach to aging. She uses comforting imagery from the beach and ocean to engage us in spiritual reflection.
Each devotion focuses on a familiar aspect of beach life and offers a parallel lesson on aging. Beach Calling helps women accept and prepare for life transitions, including how to navigate the challenges of loss and decline, to discover the hope and joy that faithful aging can bring.
Best-selling author Missy Buchanan will talk about Beach Calling on Wednesday, June 26th, 4 pm at Story & Song Bookstore Bistro. All are welcome to attend.
