Midlife
  • Age thirty-five or forty, and beyond
  • A transition (easy or hard), a crisis for some
    and a liberation for others.
  • The major life transition between the first and
    second half of life the midpoint between birth
    and death.
  • Often there is liminality, a state of
    disorientation as goals, identifications,
    values, and sense of self are in flux. (John
    Shea)

Erikson- Generativity vs. Stagnation
  • Generativity versus Stagnation (40-65?)
  • Generativity has to do with making your mark on
    the world, throuogh children, work or creative
    efforts that makes the world a better place.
  • Strive to create something(s) that will outlast
    them
  • Contributing to society and future generations

Stagnation
  • Failure to find a way to contribute
  • May feel disconnected or uninvolved with the
    community or wider society

Review of Interpersonal and Institutional - Kegan
  • The Adult Voices

Interindividual - Kegan
  • I transcends attachment to one thing, I have a
    career
  • A self is brought to the institution rather than
    derived from it
  • Embedded in interpenetration of systems
  • Distinct identity which enables both autonomy and
    intimacy, distinctiveness and inclusion
  • Anxiety comes from whatever threatens the balance
    between the creative tension between inclusion
    and distinctiveness.

Conjunctive Faith - Fowler

  • A capacity to hold paradox and contradictions in
    creative tension
  • A tolerance for ambiguity
  • An openness to others faith and an appreciate
    spirit of inquisitiveness and exploration
  • Greater capacity to live in the moment
  • Less dificulty in managing anxiety

10
Conjunctive Faith
  • What will you notice?
  • An ability to hear Gods invitation through the
    voice of others
  • Polar tensions have now been fully embraced,
    affirmed and incorporated into ones faith
  • Ability to see relativity of ones own ideology
    and thought world of ones group
  • A commitment to God beyond all symbols and
    apprehensions of God
  • Sees the truth of other religions

11
Conjunctive Faith
  • Faith knowing embraces the paradoxical nature of
    ones faith
  • Can affirm the beliefs, symbols and rituals of
    ones faith community, while seeing through them
    to the universal it mediates
  • Often see a re-appropriation and
    re-interpretation of ones past, significant
    persons and groups who influenced their growth in
    faith
