Webinar: Building and Rebuilding Joy in the Third Third of Life

May 26, 2021



Many people live joyfully in the third third of life. They take delight in the gifts and challenges that come with getting older. Yet many others seem to be stuck in an unrelenting funk as they age. The inevitable losses that come in the third third of life weigh heavily on their hearts. They yearn for persistent joy, but don’t know where to find it.

Dr. Jim Wilder believes that we can experience genuine joy as we age. But living joyfully isn’t something that magically happens to us. Rather, according to Dr. Wilder, it’s something we build intentionally. And it’s something we rebuild after times of loss and sadness. We’re all in the building-rebuilding process when it comes to joy in the third third of life.

In this webinar, you will learn from Dr. Wilder’s distinctive approach to human flourishing, one that combines theological wisdom with insights from brain science. you will be encouraged and guided in your efforts to build and rebuild a life of joy.

[This webinar was sponsored by Fuller’s De Pree Center and was recorded on Wednesday, May 26th, 2021 at 9AM (PT) via Zoom. You can watch the YouTube recording now.]
