Details: There is an important connection between baby boomer parents and grandparents, young people, and the church. Canadian Boomerfest, coming to Siloam United Church in London, Ontario this October, explores this connection. This first-of-its-kind event will bring together community members, faith leaders and experts in spirituality and the second half of life to talk about and celebrate all the ways in which the church can connect with baby boomers and their families. Topics will include caring for yourself while caring for others; building bridges between older and younger generations; and navigating transitions (like retirement, illness and loss) with grace. Watch this video to learn more about the important connection between baby boomer parents and grandparents, young people, and the church. If this topic interests you, you won’t want to miss Canadian Boomerfest, coming this October to Siloam United Church. Register today at http://canadianboomerfest.siloamunitedchurch.org
We hope to see you at one or both of these events!
