Peter Greer | Clarifying Your Mission – 40/40 Vision

Navigate the rest of your life with clarity and purpose

40-40 Vision (1)

Having recently celebrated my 40th birthday, I’m seeing firsthand how our perspective can become blurry in midlife. It’s a disruptive season where we collide with limitations on all sides. We recognize there is more of life in the rearview mirror than on the road ahead of us. We wonder if our lives so far have been worthwhile. We are uncertain about what lies ahead.Peter Greer

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.

But midlife is also an opportunity to recalibrate our vision. It’s a time to look back, take stock of our lives so far, and refocus on new dimensions of identity and calling.Peter Greer

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.
