The Third Third of Life

The Third Third of Life

No items found.

It’s never too early and never too late to ponder what a fulfilling “Third Third of Life” would look like for you.

Early in life, we spend an inordinate amount of time dwelling in angst and anxiety over selecting a spouse and a vocation, and later in life, it seems there’s hardly any time at all to consider stewarding the pile of wisdom and experiences we’ve unearthed and amassed.

How does a person who’s attained a measure of success in the first two-thirds of life prepare well for the final third? What questions should we ask ourselves? In the process of discerning our future, how do we consider our inner lives and outer relationships? Our resources and responsibilities?

Shauna Schneider, a Gathering participant who set down her career in medicine and began a purposeful pursuit of her own Third Third, will facilitate this Peer Group.

Who belongs? The forward-thinking young person, the always-tinkering older person, and especially for the person who sees a major transition on the path ahead.

When do we meet? Once a month, virtually, for five sessions, culminating in a reunion at our in-person annual conference, September 22-25, in Nashville.

What will we discuss? Between sharing personal stories, weighing the ideas of brilliant writers, and gleaning the unsurpassable wisdom found in Scripture about transitions and purpose, we'll have plenty to chew on!
