Ages and Stages
We are adults for the majority of the years of our lives. But we recognize like with everything else, there are rhythms and shifts to living that take place. And many of them have nothing to do with how old we are. Here are a few thoughts about some of those different times in our lives. And through it all--God is with us.
Life is the Great Adventure
As we go through this adventure, life provides us with many joys and blessings
as well as trials and tribulations. Sometimes our lives go relatively smoothly, but, at other times, we run into "bumps, potholes and roadblocks."
Using Discernment when facing Life's Changes
Try as we might to get everything settled in
our lives and snapped into place like Legos, there is no avoiding change. Health
concerns surface that affect both ourselves and our loved ones, a long-held job
becomes repetitive and gradually loses its appeal, forgotten interests resurface
in ways that are hard to ignore. Whatever the reason, we all enter into periods
of major transition that are best navigated with discernment tools created for
listening to God.

your life -- is an act of faith that produces hope, not despair, says a retired
vice president of Berea College.
