Quote from Lisa, "Do you know why all freshmen students at Washington University in St. Louis are required to take a course 'When I'm 64'? In the postmodern era, the very nature of our life cycle is changing. The ramifications of this are huge for Christian formation and Christian praxis. We'll be thinking about questions this raises, and the power of Jesus, in worship and Sunday School for our spring convocation."
