Flourishing in the Third Third of Life

Helping people in the third third of life to live fully and fruitfully.

The righteous will flourish like the palm tree, and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
They are planted in the house of the LORD; they flourish in the courts of our God.
In old age they still produce fruit; they are always green and full of sap.
Psalm 92:12-14
