Defeating the challenge of aging
Robert Gilbert, C.S.B.
Rob begins by pointing out that the general view of aging is growth, maturity, and decay, but that Mary Baker Eddy takes an entirely different view. In Science and Health she wrote, "Each successive stage of experience unfolds new views of divine goodness and love" (p. 66). He says, "That's what we have to look forward to," not aging and decline.
He responds to questions about how to get people to stop judging one by one's age, especially in relation to employment, feelings of loneliness, bitterness over the past, physical challenges such as decreased mobility, potential memory loss, and diabetes. He also addresses how to pray about the influence of heredity and other age-related conditions.
