I Can Hardly Wait to Grow Old
Thursday, February 14 from 9:30am-12noon
"Simeon and Anna" by Julie Lonneman
How does your relationship with God grow and change as you age? Have you ever wondered what God might be calling you to do in your "Golden Years"? Join Spiritual Director and Retreat Leader Tom Allen for a morning exploring the topics of spirituality and vocation in the aging process.
Tom Allen is a Spiritual Director at Loyola Spirituality Center in St. Paul.
Currently, Tom serves as a care giver to his wife, Julie, who was diagnosed with young onset Alzheimer's in 2010. "It seems to be my calling to find God on the interior and exterior margins of life, and to help others do the same."
Tom has been a teacher in Christos Center's Spiritual Director Training Program, Sacred Ground's professional days, and for the Alzheimer's Association. In addition to his passion for doing spiritual direction, he loves to teach topics about letting go, compassion, finding meaning, the gift of downward mobility, and the spirituality of Alzhemeir's.
