Flourishing in the Third Third of Life: The Promise of Psalm 92

Webinar Description

Today, approximately 10,000 people in the U.S. will turn 65. The popular cultural narrative says their time of fruitfulness is over. But Scripture offers a different vision, a vision of flourishing in the “third third” of life. Dr. Mark Roberts leads a conversation that equips you to serve the “third thirders” in your ministries as well as think in new ways about your own future.


Dr. Mark D. Roberts is the executive director of Fuller’s De Pree Center and the primary writer of the Life for Leaders daily devotions. His most recent book is a commentary on the New Testament letter to the Ephesians (Zondervan, 2016). Mark and his wife Linda, an executive coach and spiritual director, have two adult children and one lively Golden Retriever.

  1. Dr. Roberts, I enjoyed listening to your webinar just now. My wife and I have been on message on this topic for a lot of years, and have a book entitled Third Calling: What are you doing the rest of your life?” I’m happy to send you a copy of our book. We also have a retreat we do called Re-Ignite, which is also online as a video course under the “Learn” on our website. I’m happy to send you a code if you’d care to see what we’ve done with that.
    Twenty years ago we published a book on programming in the local church, Amazing Grays: Unleashing the Power of Age in Your Congregation. We’d love to connect! Richard & Leona Bergstrom, Re-Ignite.net

    Hello, Richard. (Please call me Mark!) Thanks for your encouragement. I am aware of your work. I bought your book last year, so don’t need another copy. As I read it, I remember thinking we were heading in very much the same direction. I’d love to check out your video course. I’m looking for great resources to recommend to churches. And I would enjoy connecting. I’ll touch base by email. Thanks for reaching out!
