For many moving closer to an actual or imagined retirement date, the reality of the event and life afterward may begin to seem puzzling, uncertain, or daunting. In this course, participants will be able to examine the most common issues that perplex or cause concern. The goal of the course is not to answer every question, but to explore how God is present in our lives and working in the process from anticipation to realization of life after full-time employment.

All Crossroads courses include these features:

  • Participants have access 24 hours/7 days a week to a password-protected web site.
  • Each participant belongs to a small Community of Conversation and faith sharing guided by a facilitator.
  • The course site is generally open to participants for a year after the course is complete.
  • Technical assistance is easy to contact and prompt in returning a message.
  • A Certificate of Active Participation is awarded to those who post at least three messages of substance for each week of content.

Additional Materials Needed:

All materials will be made available in the course.  

Time Commitment:

A participant can expect to spend 3 – 4 hours each week.  This commitment includes both preparation and interaction online.

Content Scholars: To be determined
