Description: The life expectancy of previous generations was only about 50 years. Modern medicine has dramatically changed life expectancies, and we now have “Two Lifetimes.” Life I occurs before halftime, and Life II occurs after. How can you make the most of your “Second Half,” which was unavailable to our predecessors? We’ll sit down with Lloyd Reeb to discuss how we can do the “good works God prepared in advance for us to do.”
