At the Crossroads : Leadership Lessons for the Second Half of Life (Paperback) (Clayton Smith)
about this item
In recent years we have been hearing our church members ask, “What do I need to do to be ready for retirement? I want the next part of my life to the best. I want to make a significant difference!”
As many as 10,000 men and women are retiring each day but many dislike and are anxious about the idea of retirement; they very much would like to be redirected or redeployed to a life in retirement years that is meaningful and significant. Yet, transitioning into retirement without adequate planning can be very frustrating, confusing and stressful for almost everyone.
For too many there may be an unfortunate lack of purpose, significance, and identity. We have seen many people who really are at the prime of their life miss out on opportunities that bring fulfillment and joy. This six-week study can offer hope and help! We hear of too many stories about friends and neighbors that fall into a retirement syndrome that may lead to distress, anxiety, depression, divorce, poor health, and even suicide. Many more worry about the increased costs of health care and financial resources necessary to sustain a long life.
Will the Boomer Generation become a burden or a blessing to our global society? This Bible based six-week small group study offers a very positive and encouraging outcome.
By following biblical principles from the lives of Moses, Abraham, Elijah, Nehemiah, Jesus and Paul, as well as other encouraging Bible passages, participants can discover their purpose, passion, and mission for their retirement years.
