Creatively and wisely navigating the last third of life is an ever changing challenge. Many more people are living longer thus greatly increasing the promise and perils of elderhood. Listening to the voices gathered from interviews with 60, 70, 80 and 90 year-olds, we will consider how to “seize the promises” and “manage the perils” of aging. During the course of the conference, through the lens of faith, participants will not only come to a better understanding of aging, but develop there own “pathway” of quality life during their senior years.
