The millennials seek their first calling and purpose in life, and those who’ve entered the last third ask many of the same questions as they search for meaning in their retirement years. Boomer alums (those born between 1946 and 1964) are invited to attend Third Calling, a special workshop with Richard Bergstrom ’72 and Leona Anderson Bergstrom ’73. Based on their book, “Third Calling: What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?” this fun, interactive seminar will help you find purpose and passion in your life, clarify your calling and what God wants you to be and do in this season, explain what it means to live a legacy, and assist you in finding your voice and overcoming cultural stereotypes about retirement. The $20 cost includes a signed copy of the book.
