Most of us have felt that we have some kind of control over our lives. As we age, events seem to rush on ahead, leaving us trying to adapt. Science and technology have left many of us behind, afraid that we will no longer be in the mainstream.

During this third stage of life, though vulnerable, we must make transitions that will take us deeper into trusting and knowing God.
