From speaker, Heather Campbell-Enns:

In this session, we will explore what it means to be resilient. While aging is accompanied by happiness, it also holds unique physical, emotional, social, and spiritual stresses or losses. These positive and negative experiences will be acknowledged, and we will look at what can help elderly persons facing adversities. We will discuss useful resources to support resiliency, including religion and spirituality, and how we can help each other find our way to these resources when needed. The roles of aging adults in the church will be highlighted.
