Stephen Pickard at the St James' Institute: Ageing, Mortality and Spiritual Existence Today

Our Director Stephen Pickard will speak at the St James' Institute on the topic of Ageing, Mortality and Spiritual Existence Today.

Ageing has surprising implications for spiritual life. However, with rapid increases in life expectancy, death denial often impairs our ability to understand what it means to be a human. In this reflection on the theological dimension of aging, Professor Pickard explores the importance of retaining a sense of human mortality and what it means to bear the image of God throughout the lifespan. He will discuss the pastoral implications of this affirmation and the importance of an understanding of personhood that transcends the biomedical paradigm.
