Big Events in 2015
The Center Celebrates 15 Years of Service to the Aging Community
The CLH Center for Spirituality and Aging turns 15 this year. And we’re celebrating in some significant ways. In April we’ll have an afternoon colloquium on Congregational Ministry to and with Older Adults, gaining wisdom from successful programs and looking to discern the shape this ministry needs to take in the future. This will happen on Monday, April 13. On Tuesday, April 14 Wendy Lustbader, noted author and speaker, will present “Beyond Care: The Glorious Adventure of the Spirit.” Registration for these events will open in February.
Along with these events, the Center’s founding director, Don Koepke has edited a book titled The Essential Spirit in which aging services practitioners focus in on the importance of the spiritual in their work with the aging. This book will be published in the summer of 2015.
The Center Hosts an International Conference
We are very pleased to be hosting this Conference’s first time in the United States. A slate of distinguished plenary speakers has been booked, and the “Call for Proposals” for workshops, talks, and posters is now open. Go to the Conference website for more information, to sign up for conference newsletters, and to learn about the Los Angeles sites and special events that will make the Conference memorable.
