Author and pastor, R. Paul Stevens, will explore how faith and spirituality can help people find vocation and meaning after retirement. His presentation, “Aging Matters,” will take place on Monday, Nov. 13 at 2:00 p.m., at Covenant Village of the Great Lakes, a faith-based senior living community located at 2510 Lake Michigan Drive, N.W., Grand Rapids. The free program is open to the public, but space is limited. To reserve a spot, visit www.CovenantGreatLakes.org or call 877-812-8745.

Author of the popular books, “Aging Matters:  Finding Your Calling for the Rest of Your Life” and “Work Matters: Lessons from Scripture,” Stevens suggests a person’s calling does not end with formal retirement, but continues throughout a person’s lifetime. Following one’s calling creates renewed purpose, direction, and well-being, which can lead to a more fulfilling retirement.

Stevens has been a pastor for 20 years, a student counselor, a business person, and a professor in an interdisciplinary theological college for the whole people of God. He is the current chairman of the Institute for Marketplace Transformation based in Vancouver and active in Asia and North America. For more information, visit http://www.rpaulstevens.com.
