Building up a practical education program for the aged Christians : designing and carrying out senior worldview training retreat
Do Hyung Kim
"The purpose of this project was to equip aged Christians with a Christian Worldview in order to overcome diverse issues that exist in their senescent life. The author proceeded the project as follows. The groundwork of the preparation of an educational program for the aged Christians and the methods of this paper were described in Introduction. In chapter 1, the author explained roughly the concept and history of Christians worldview. In chapter 2, the author explored the definition of 'aging' from social, biological, and psychological aspects while describing the existing issues of senescent life. The author tried to seek the potential meanings of 'aging' from a Christian perspective based on the Bible. Paul Stevens' understating of aging, Erikson's theory of development stage, John Westerhoff's theory of education, and Christian worldview rooted in Reformed theology were theoretical grounds used for the educational program of the aged Christians. Specially, four factors of Christians worldview - creation, fall, redemption, and consummation - became the main stages of the suggested educational program, 'Senior Worldview Training Retreat.' In Chapter 3, the author described the content and flow of the 'Senor Worldview Training Retreat' and through chapters 4 and 5, the evaluation of the project and conclusion were explained." -- Leaf .
