Ageing, Mortality and Spiritual Existence Today

The St James’ Institute presents: Ageing, Mortality and Spiritual Existence Today

Ageing has surprising implications for spiritual life. However, with rapid increases in life expectancy, death denial often impairs our ability to understand what it means to be a human. In this reflection on the theological dimension of aging, Professor Pickard explores the importance of retaining a sense of human mortality and what it means to bear the image of God throughout the lifespan. He will discuss the pastoral implications of this affirmation and the importance of an understanding of personhood that transcends the biomedical paradigm.

Rt Rev’d Professor Stephen Pickard is the Director of the Centre for Public and Contextual Theology Research, the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture and an Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn.

Tickets to this event are $25 and can be booked here.
