John Stott and Billy Graham said they were unprepared for old age. Dying, yes, and life hereafter, but not for old age. If those two much loved evangelists, steeped in biblical truths, could say that say that – what about the rest of us?

The thing is that most people have no idea of what it is really like to be ‘old’. We never think about it – we push it away from us.

But those of us who work with older people find many (not all!)who have learnt the secret of being content even in physical frailty and  mental fragility

There are  myths about older people, and a great lack of understanding.  These will be addressed!

This morning there was a great time of pray here  and it’s going to be a really good seminar. Because God wants us to know these things!  It’s all by His grace, halleluia!

And the good thing is that so many people are wanting to know these things now!
