Life Stages in the Modern Age
This is a downloadable resource.Add to cart
For most of human history, the vast majority of people have passed through predictable stages of life: childhood, apprenticeship, marriage, parenthood, professional mastery, grandparenthood, community elder. However, in recent decades many find themselves unsure of how to successfully move to the next stage of life, or even to how to master the stage they currently find themselves in. Further obscuring our understanding are modern complications of extended educational seasons in life, geographical transience, broken families, and a lack of exemplars for the extended old age many face. This breakout will address questions related to modern developmental milestones, generativity, broken family structures, and non-traditional life courses with the framework provided by biblical models and principles.
