Because so much of our adult life is devoted to work, our individual identity is often closely tied to our work. When we retire, we need to shed the identity and the time demands that have dominated our life. And while letting go, we need to find the “new me” and refocus on our relationships and use of time. To what does God call us at this stage of our lives?
The Rev. Philip Rohler, retired Church of the Covenant pastor and soon-to-be member of our congregation, will lead three Monday sessions, Feb. 13, 20 and 27, devoted to these questions. The time will be either 10 a.m. or 6:30 p.m., depending on interest. The focus will be on exploring the experiences of retirees with different retirement experiences, with follow-up discussion. Please contact Philip directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being part of this class.
