Are you in the fourth quarter of life (i.e. 60+) and wondering about your continuing contribution to God and his kingdom? If so, you may be interested to attend a seminar on that topic at St Clement's in Kingston on 28th July. This will be led by Paul Arnott who heads up Q4Connection for national cross denominational organisation Christian Ministry Advancement (CMA) and has been helping to develop this new initiative since February last year. He is in his Fourth-Quarter himself and has grappled with many of the issues of this sometimes-tricky phase of life.
The Lord wants us to continue to use our life experience and gifts for the sake of God's kingdom, no matter what age we are. Q4 has collected many stories of Australian Christians from around the nation who are doing a wide variety of things in their Fourth-Quarters: coaching and mentoring young people through groups like Kids Hope; serving on church vestries, boards or the boards of Christian Not-for- profits; being part of a Men's Shed; establishing a retreat centre for Christian leaders; serving in the Army Reserve; or teaching English as a foreign language. We will hear some of these stories during our Fourth-Quarter day together.
Paul Arnott served in parish ministry around the diocese from 1986 until the end of 2001.
The cost of the day is $20 which includes lunch. Please register by contacting the St Clement's church office on 03 6229 7678, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
