“Aging Well, Staying Vital” is a four-week series presented by the Contemporary Issues Study Group of PEACE Lutheran Church. This group presents informed discussions on issues of public interest several times each year. Martin Luther, whose doctrines paved the way for the Lutheran Church, believed in the importance of people being educated and well-informed so they may exercise good decision at all levels of private and civic affairs.
