It’s no secret that growing older can be an ambidextrous experience. On one hand, aging can be filled with a joyful mix of satisfying moments, astute insights, and exciting new challenges. And, on that other hand, for many there are the daunting physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges that can burden us during the so-called golden years, which for some aren’t so golden.
Harry Sterling shares his wise insights about seeking and receiving genuine solace as we age.
The Rev. Dr. Harry Sterling and his wife have lived on the waterfront on Prudence Island since 1999. He retired in 2003 from conducting research in the health and human services. In 2014, he retired from all his volunteer commitments, except for two: he continues to preach once a month during the winter in the Island Union Church and remains the legal guardian of a veteran who is no longer able to make his own decisions and who lives in the Veterans Home.
