Why do we want to share our memories?At a time when an increasing number of people are living longer, for some, later years may be enjoyed as ripe old age. For others, they may be a time of uncertainty, isolation and loneliness. For both, memories can be a resource from the past which enables us to live in the present. For that to happen, memories need to be shared.An Anglican priest for sixty years, Neville Smith seeks a Christian understanding of what it means to be old. Through the Bible, the Church and his own personal experience, he describes the epiphanies of faith, which we can find in many different areas of life as we grow older and as things change around us, leaving us behind in an unfamiliar world.The Church must also move on. As it does so, this book comes as a timely reminder that in looking increasingly to the future, the Church must not neglect those who have formed its past.
