Retiring for work: a lifetime serving the Lord (Peter and Christine Jensen)—16 September 2020
Peter and Christine have always cherished Ephesians 2:10: “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them”. As a result, over the decades, it is their daily prayer that they will “seek and find the good works that [God] have prepared for us to walk in”.
For the Jensens, work is not merely one’s paid occupation, but the service of one’s whole life. This means that the Christian school student works—as does the Christian retiree. This also means that a talk on this subject is for everyone.
Topics that were addressed in this seminar include: time and how to use it; relationships and how our work serves others; age and how we can be active even if we are no longer able to leave home; aloneness and how we cope with loss; money and generosity; and hope and joy.
