Our lives and faith look different in the second chapter of life. There are new opportunities, and many experiences behind us, too.

  • What is God’s purpose for me in this stage of life?
  • What does faithfulness look like now?
  • How do I trust Him and have courage as seasons change?
  • How can my faith remain vibrant and strong?
  • How can I help others who find themselves in this stage of life?

About Aging Faithfully

The fourth annual Aging Faithfully Conference brings together some of the best voices across religious traditions to discuss how faith and well-being are different in the second half of life, and how that can be celebrated in daily living. The first conference featured Lutheran theologian Dr. Martin E. Marty; the second conference featured author and poet Kathleen Norris; and best-selling author and speaker Sister Joan Chittister spoke at the 2016 conference.

The Aging Faithfully Conference is a partnership of Augustana University, The South Dakota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society.
