Wesley Uniting Church,
National Circuit Forrest ACT
Sunday 14 October, 2 to 4 pm
with Dr Holly Schut, Director of Midlife Momentum
Midlife Momentum is a ministry designed to aid individuals who are age 40 and beyond to live with God-given purpose and power.
In the last 90 years God has added 30 years to the average life span. 700,000 women are widowed each year, and are widows an average of 14 years. In 1998, if you reached age 65, statistically you could expect to live to 84+. Suicide rates for men in retirement are second only to teenagers. Boomers are coming of age and dealing with midlife and retirement issues.
Midlife Momentum provides a process of life reflection exercises to increase awareness of how God’s grace has been at work throughout our lives, preparing us for the next season of living into God’s purposes and plans. The process fosters openness to the movement of the Spirit, listening for the new things God wants to do in and through us, and it allows us to more fully become who God created us to be.
