Festival of Wisdom & Grace: The Wise Shall Shine

"Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever." - Daniel 12:3

What is true wisdom? How do we receive it, cultivate it, and pass it on? You’ve led a full life. How do you continue to live into that fullness in retirement? Join others in the second half of life for a time of inspiration and renewal in the North Carolina mountains.

Baby Boomers and Senior Adults will enjoy this conference, held August 13-16 at Lake Junaluska and designed for those looking for renewal in the second half of life, those nearing retirement, or those who have already been retired for many years. The theme is "the wise shall shine," inspired by Daniel 12: 3. Two keynote speakers and a slate of workshop leaders will illuminate this theme, connecting wisdom and renewal.

Early registration ends June 15 and spots will fill up fast. For registration information, contact Anne Dooley (; 336-299-1571 ext. 306). We will coordinate transportation and reserve a block of rooms together
