A Christian view of retirement
Attitudes to retirement vary, and in this book Wendy Billington draws on her pastoral skills and life experience to ask the question: what is a Christian view of retirement? If we believe that life is a gift from God, should we not be viewing retirement as part of an integrated whole and see our latter years as part of God’s plan? This book is intended for all to read: individuals preparing for retirement and in their retirement years as well as their families, friends, befrienders, carers and professionals. Written in two sections, ‘Uprooting the weeds’ and ‘Sowing the seeds’, it includes questions for group discussion at the end of each chapter, followed by a meditative thought for the day and a closing prayer.
