Aging as an adventure: Federal Way church to host live talk with Carl Honoré

Free event at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3

Aging is inevitable, especially as 2020 slips by, but there are ways to grow older with grace and hope.

Steel Lake Presbyterian Church is hosting a free talk about aging via Zoom with international award-winning speaker Carl Honoré at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3.

Honoré, a writer, broadcaster and TED Talks speaker, will explore “the golden age of aging” and offer tips on how to age better while working to eliminate age discrimination in today’s culture.

His latest book, “Bolder: Making the Most of Our Longer Lives,” encourages readers to re-think what it means to grow older.

This is the first major community event of the church’s history. The upcoming event can benefit and is available for all ages to register, said Colleen Chinen, associate pastor of Steel Lake Presbyterian Church.

“Ageism has impacted our culture and we need to rethink what this means,” Chinen said. “We don’t need to hold on to old meanings of retirement.”

Retirement provides more time to explore the hobbies or adventures you’ve always wanted to do, and allows for more opportunities to impact the world, she said.

The free, live talk is open to those in the Federal Way community and beyond.

“I want to build a sense of community with a sense of ‘how do we do this together?’ through all generations and not just 50-plus,” Chinen said.

Registration is required as attendance is limited to 100 people. To register or for more information, visit steellake.org.
