THEOLOGY AT THE BOTTLEWORKS #168: Talking About Aging Never Gets Old: Aging in America

  • Schlafly Bottleworks 7260 Southwest Avenue Maplewood, MO, 63143 United States (map)

THEOLOGY AT THE BOTTLEWORKS is a monthly public discussion that takes up the most important issues of our times among an amazing diversity of interesting people. Join the conversation this month as we discuss Talking About Aging Never Gets Old:  Aging in America.  Everyone wants to live a long life, but no one wants to "age.” Why? We are living longer, but are we fighting against aging more than ever? Studies suggest older people are happier, so are our assumptions, attitudes and fears about youth and aging wrong? As the population over 65 steadily increases, how does this change our societal expectations and obligations?  Come have a brew, share your view, and lend an ear to others'.
