Navigate the rest of your life with clarity and purpose
During this episode Peter Greer offers insight for navigating midlife with fresh clarity and purpose. Drawing on the wisdom of the book of Ecclesiastes, he shows how we can come to grips with the realities of who we are and what we should become in the years ahead.
In a world that can seem meaningless at times, God offers perspective that anchors us, renews us and propels us back into the world in meaningful mission and service. Rediscover who God has called you to be. And see the rest of your life with the clarity of 40/40 vision.
Peter shares in the interview that he is glad didn’t have to do all this alone. Greg Lafferty, a pastor and friend who has navigated his forties with resilience and unflinching honesty, allowed Peter to coerce him into writing this book together. As one committed to understanding and applying Scripture, Greg studied the book of Ecclesiastes and used it as the lens to explore midlife in a way that was hopeful, helpful and even enjoyable.
Join us in this incredible interview on rediscovering who God has called you to be. And see the rest of your life with the clarity of 40/40 vision.
