Thinking About Religion
As part of our gracefully greying community, a goal is to seek out and communicate with leaders of various religions to exchange ideas about customs, traditions, daily practices and views on many religious topics that we all think about. Through interviews, blogs, and podcasts, we will engage in discussions with individuals and leaders of many religions in our community, region, and nationwide - to learn from each other. Religious views on illness, death and dying are especially relevant in these critical times of the Coronaviris, where many lives are at stake. Questions such as is there life hereafter, is life eternal, is there a heaven and hell, are we reincarnated, how are religious practices similar and different at home and around the globe, and what is the future of religion, are all important. The questions are endless.
We know that religion is an important aspect of many peoples lives. As we are aging, many people turn to religion for comfort, solace and perhaps for answers. We welcome your thoughts and experiences on these important topics. We found an interesting article that we would like to share - 'Religion and Spirituality in Older People' by Joy Intriago, Seniorsmatter.com.
