A new initiative which is currently under development – The Omega Course is made up of five sessions aimed at helping older people face some of the key issues that come in our later years.
It is Biblically based, but equally appropriate to those who are non-church, other faith or of no faith. The course is designed to be interactive where each person is encouraged to share their own experience as well as helping them to honestly face up to important end of life issues.
This course is due for publication in 2018 and further information is available on request.
Comments from the pilot course:
“The fact that my life can leave a legacy, other than in material things, was very inspiring”
“Understanding how my identity changes with age was a very positive learning experience”
“The reminder that I need to get on with addressing issues of the past now, and how to go about it, gave me renewed confidence to try to restore broken relationships.”
“I realised how I can still inspire others”
“Recognising that some of the physical changes I feel are both normal and natural with age.”
“The fact that I am still relevant in my older age was really encouraging”
“I recognise that I am a rich resource”
