Four Ways Spirituality Shapes How We Age

Rev. Susan Walker (pictured standing) teaches a Sightlines class this month at Christ Church on Capitol Hill. This month, Seabury launched Sightlines, a new pilot program with the Episcopal Diocese of Washington exploring how we respond to transitions in our lifespan. The Rev. Susan K.

Campers and residents shared meals, played games together, and even celebrated an ice cream social at the week’s end.
