Someone I admire and respect described life once as a race. It’s a great description and one that has relevance for us no matter our age. I used to imagine the race to be a sprint, but I am more inclined these days to view it as a marathon. My efforts, lately, have placed me at the finish line in many respects. I work now in aged care, or more specifically in pastoral care in aged care. I get to join people for part of their race, especially as they near the finish line. Perhaps it might help to share some observations from there.
