Our Next Service
Fairy Tales for the Elder Years
Rev. Bruce Bode
The majority of fairy tales we know today have to do with the issues and psychology of childhood and youth and the threshold crossing into adulthood. But there are also a minority of fairy tales, some of which are being reclaimed, that deal with the developmental changes and psychological shifts related to both the middle years and the elder years. This sermon, the final one in this series of three late summer sermons on the distilled wisdom of fairy tales, will indicate what values these fairy tales bring forward for the elder years.
