Retirement: The Good, the Bad, the Blessings

by Rev. Dr. Beverly C. DeBord

At each stage of our lives, we who are disciples of Jesus Christ face unique opportunities for God's continuing transformation. This nine-session study takes a look at the good, the bad, and the blessings of retirement, reflecting on biblical themes that speak to this season of life. For those who are in retirement, as well as those who are moving toward it, God continues to open up new possibilities and challenges, as we continue to follow Christ into the future. As in all things, God walks with us, promising that he will never forsake us.
