This webinar was sponsored by Fuller’s De Pree Center and was recorded on Wednesday, December 9th at 10AM (PT) via Zoom. You can watch the YouTube recording now.
This webinar will feature an interview of Alice Fryling, a spiritual director and bestselling author of ten books on relationships and spiritual formation. Mark Roberts will be interviewing Alice about her brand-new book, Aging Faithfully: The Holy Invitation of Growing Older.
Mark had the opportunity to read the manuscript of this book and wrote the following endorsement:
Today, over ten thousand people in the United States will turn sixty-five. Very few are prepared for what lies ahead, both the incredible opportunities and the inevitable losses. Alice Fryling, in Aging Faithfully, is a wise and vulnerable guide who invites us to join her on a journey into deeper meaning and truer flourishing. This is an excellent book for people in the third third of life and for those who love them.
“What makes this book so special,” Mark added, “is the combination of deep biblical wisdom combined with Alice’s openness and honesty. I loved reading this book because it spoke to my heart as well as my head.”
We are pleased to be able to speak with Alice and look forward to introducing you to her and her wonderful new book.
