Listen!  

On this episode of Friend Speaks My Mind, Quakers and Aging, I explore the question, what is the experience of being an older friend, both physically and spiritually?  I begin by heading to Kendal for a tour of the retirement community, led by Peggy Brick; then an interview with Friend Ruth Peterson about her engagement with Quakerism and how aging has effected her spirituality; and finally an interview with Philadelphia Yearly Meeting's Care and Aging coordinator, George Schaefer about the "final third of life" and what it means to be an elder.
