“Spirituality and aging”
The Fall 2022 issue of Vision: A Journal for Church and Theology is edited by Jane Kuepfer, PhD, Schlegel Specialist in Spirituality and Aging with the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging and Conrad Grebel University College; and Andy Brubacher Kaethler, PhD, Associate Professor of Christian Formation and Culture at AMBS.
The co-editors write, “This issue of Vision focuses on the opportunities and challenges associated with three aspects of spirituality and aging in particular: changes, questions and resources. Through these themes we honor the experience of aging, with all its emotions, ponderings and questions. We hear about ways to challenge ageism and engage life more fully with and as older adults. We open ourselves to the voices of older adults and those who know them well and love them deeply to better appreciate the marvelous interrelationship of spirituality and aging.”
The issue includes pieces by AMBS graduates Wes Goertzen (MDiv 2013), Beverly Suderman-Gladwell (MDiv 1991) and Ingrid Loepp Thiessen (MDiv 1990), and current MDiv student Lisa Heinrichs. Additional contributors include Ardith Frey, Velma Swartz, Cynthia Brubacher Noel, Barbara Bowman, Marian Durksen Wiens, Kathryn Cressman, Moses Falco, Elsie M. Epp, and the co-editors.
