Not aging, but spiritual maturing

From the July 1989 issue of The Christian Science Journal


What would be your reply if you were asked the question "What are you doing about aging?" Since it seems an inevitable process, your reply might very well be "What can I do?" or "Do I have a choice?" A lot of thought is being given to the subject of gerontology and geriatrics, the study of the phenomena of aging. There are many different theories put forward in the attempt to explain the causes of aging, and many good humanitarians are spending their time and effort to help humanity cope with what appears to them to be an inevitable process with all its problems and restrictions.
